Hi Barbara,

Your hunch is right about why I am considering switching. The last time I talked to my pdoc (which was probably 1 1/2 years ago and 90 miles away from my new home...which shows how stable I've been on Remeron for 5 1/2 years...doesn't hurt that my fiance is a counselor), he said I'd probably have to switch due to the lack of data on Remeron and pregnancy.

But, I totally agree...switching meds is HELL. The few months before I settled on Remeron were probably the worst in my life.

My pdoc is very well respected (named #1 in large city) and up on things. So, my fiance and I will go talk to him in a couple months. I don't want to switch while pregnant (pdoc said to try to switch about 3 months before) I might even try before we're married. But, I'd wait to the spring when the days are longer and brighter to try.

I'm hoping that my well-informed pdoc may have some new info on Remeron the next time I see him. I read an interesting article stating that even though antidepressants are much LESS likely to harm a fetus than things like, say, asthma meds...that the stigma of mental illness/brain affecting chemicals is so high, that women are told to get off meds that are really NECESSARY to them...where people are less insistent that women stop other life-saving meds. (My pdoc wants me on something, though, for sure).

Thanks for your valuable input...I'm off to work.

Have a good day.

Jill :)
