Everyone responds differently to the Remeron with regards to sedation. Some people will get knocked out for a long time day after day whereas for some the sedating effects wear off quickly after the first few days and don't cause much of a problem. If you had lots of trouble with Zyprexa, I would say that you might have trouble with Remeron, but you never know. I didn't have any trouble with Zyprexa except for a little oversleeping, only by a couple of hours, and I haven't had too much trouble with Remeron since day 1. It's a great medicine, except for the weight gain and sedation, and it's up to you to decide if these are things you are proned to be affected by. For some, the weight gain can be counteracted by adding Wellbutrin, which is what I'm doing. But in the case of the people who's sedation does not improve after a week or after increasing the dosage, the med just might not be the best for them.
Good luck.

Oh yeah. You shouldn't be drinking alcohol if you have problems with depression. And I doubt that you'll get much help from people on this forum if you state your problem as 'etc, etc, and also I drink a lot of alcohol'. That's a pretty pointless stipulation, seeing as alcohol is a depressant in the first place. Quit drinking and get healthy!
