hey just reading the post of getting off remeron sucessfully.
Well I am in the same boat and I think the most important thing is to taper very very slowly.
I have taken almost 2yrs to taper!! I was on 45mg and was horrible daydreams,jerking, agitation., wt. gain (45lbs), and have never ever felt these things in my life...
I started tapering by 10%(ie 4.5mg less each time). I would stay on that dose for 2-3months , then got to the next. I know this sounds crazy but I have been seeing an acupucturist that gets people off their meds. He strongly recommended this way and then to detox.
Right now i have been on the smallest size I can possibly take( about 2mg). it may sound silly but I still am getting withdrawl (physical and emotional)but not as strong.. I have had periods of derealization stuff when withdrawing also. Like I said this has never been issue with me.
I have never been on any antideprressant or anxiety meds before in my whole life until my dr. started to pill feed me for a chronic muscle tension in the neck/dizzyness.
Well I can tell you that my own personal experience has been pure hell with this medication.
It never got rid of the so called chemical imbalance causing anxiety /depression that they "claimed" I had.. ya right...
Well so far I am hanging in... like you say you must use every tool handy to get through
People out there have to know what these drugs do to the brain biochemistry.. and when you get side effects that means that your body is telling you IT IS NOT RIGHT!!!
I hope to be clean in another 2 months if all goes well and i know from my own research and talking to some others that have been on antidepressants that it may take the body up to 2yrs to feel well... depending how long you were on it. Remeron never made me feel good inside, just empty numb and freaky fantasys...
I hope they ban all these drugs.
If you are so depressed then get a support network, and scream it out or whatever til it passes ... hang on and your body will heal. listen to your body and it will tell you what to do...the body was made to heal not be drugged up , especially when it comes to mood altering drugs..
sorry for the long winded letter
