Remeron Appetite, Weight Gain - Dose and Duration.

Posted by fachad on July 6, 2008, at 12:04:53

My questions have to do with the notorious effect of Remeron on appetite and weight gain. I know it's said that the hunger/sleepiness is less with 'higher' doses.

In other's experience of this med, where is the dose cut-off? How much do you have to take to feel less hungry? Is 30 mg/day enough, or are higher doses needed to avoid the bottomless pit hunger? Do you feel less hungry at 30 mg than at 15 mg?

Another big question I have is, do the hunger and the weight gain level off after time (say 3 months or 6 months or 2 years or whatever) OR do you just always feel really hungry as long as you take it and does your weight just keep going up and up?

And finally, if you quit Remeron (another topic, I realize), does the weight come off by itself - or at least easier than if it were regular (not drug caused) weight?

Remeron is a good antidepressent and it might be acceptable (tho' undesirable) to gain some weight and feel some hunger IF I thought that I would develop some tolerance to those effects over time. But I don't want to just be eating and gaining for years and years if the effects are known to continute as long as you take the drug.

Anybody have experience in this area? Often it seems like people just quit Remeron right away becasue of the weight thing, and so there is nobody with long term experience to say whether it goes away or diminishes with time.

So any info, experiences, or comments regarding the dose effects and the duration of the effects would be most appreciated.
