> Hi, I'm taking Remeron for appetite stimulation. I've tried 7.5 and 15 mg, not much difference in the effects, marked carb cravings for the first month, and sedation.
> Now after a month the appetite stimulation is tapering off. I understand that the side effects may be inversely proportionate to dosage, so I'm not sure I should increase the dosage.
> If the serotonin receptors become saturated, might it be a good idea to go off it completely for a short time and then restart, to "reset" the receptors?
> I'd like to understand the mechanism of this appetite stimulation.. is it the inhibition of the serotonin-2 receptors? And how do you maintain the optimal level over time?
> Thanks in advance!


Unfortunately, you can't rely on Remeron to be a permanent appetite stimulant as this is an effect that fades. Only 50% of takers actually experience it & a smaller propotion gain significant weight.
