In reply to Remeron for treatment-resistant depression w/GAD?, posted by jerrympls on April 2, 2006, at 3:23:22

I say go for it. If you prepare yourself mentally for the startup side effects (nightmares), perhaps it will make it easier to get through them. If you tolerate the drug well, you might then consider adding a serotonin reuptake inhibitor if your response is inadequate. Remember, though, it will take as long as 6 weeks at the right dosage for you to see a pronounced effect.

One step at a time. Keep us posted on a daily basis. With the support to be found here, it might prevent you from bailing-out on this drug prematurely.

Which drugs have you had the most success with in the past?
