Thanks for the info. My family doc. knows what I am taking Remeron as well as my p-doc knows I am on cholesterol lowering med. My cholesterol is elevated but it was the triglycerides (the fat that was in the blood that was high) and my doc said I needed meds to control this.

I had researched where Remeron can raise cholesterol levels, and at first I thought that was probably the cause. Because I am only 28 (male) and weigh about 160lbs. and I eat pretty healthy, exercise, and use vitamin supplements. But my family doc. says that the condition is probably inherited. But I know he probably doesn't know that Remeron can raise cholesterol level. I go back in 2 months to get my cholesterol checked again and if it and my triglycerides remain high I will confront him about the Remeron.

One quick question is the raising of cholesterol a common or not so common side effect of Remeron.

Thanks soooooooo much for your time and effort in answering my post. If you have any more info or questions feel free to ask. Thanks again
