60mg is a serotonin blasting dose for Remeron, I dunno, I tried at 52.5 at one point.

Some doctors will have a group of a population that they see it is weight neutral or less at a higher dose.

Personally, my doctor has never seen any weight reduction at a higher dose and in fact hunger increases as the dose is raised. I think that a majority of the weight increase comes from increased hunger.
