> Actualy, now that you mention it, I did have bizzar nightmares on remeron. I was switching from zyprexa to remeron. I quickly went back on zyprexa. zyprexa is very similar a drug as seroquel, which I've not taken. From what I hear seroquel is more likely to make you tired than zyprexa. zyprexa is used for mood disorders too. Very effective. I've been taking it now 15 years. Great for getting your mind off suicide. Remeron is probably more likely to make tired than zyprexa. For a 13 yo girl it probably would not take much zyprexa, maybe 5-10 mg. I currently take 15mg. I don't know for her, but would not go with the remeron.

Thank you! I was really concerned about giving 2 antidepressants to my daughter who may be bi-polar. She's really been poisoned about Seroquel, and does not want to take it anymore. (although I believe that it was working for her to some degree, I wanted to replace it anyway)

Why did you want to get off of Zyprexa?

I'm going to ask her new pdoc about mood stabilizers for her. I don't think treating mood swings with Zoloft alone is the answer. She seems determined to try it though. As long as she's well enough, the less medication the better.

Thanks!
Laura
