Remeron

lvledusa asked 2 years ago

or Mirtazapine
an antidepressant
 
i just want to see if anyone has heard of it or has been on it. ive been on it for a few weeks now. im also on lithium 300mg x 6 and tegratol 400mg aswell for my … “bipolar “disorder”” weighing at 125 pounds, but anyways i really dont know why she started giving me remeron because its an antidepressant and im not depressed. my problem is anxiety and my lack of sleep.  
 
side effects to this medication for me: really really manic!!!! the shakes!! it is so much like speed like you wouldn’t believe. but this only seems to happen whenever i smoke a cigarette or drink coffee. sooo yah i take half a pill a day now.
 
it helps me a bit for my anxiety and i sleep too well now.
 
anything that you would suggest that would be better?

She probably prescribed because it’s really sedating at lower doses, you have anxiety and according to Jerod, you may as well be smoking pot when you take Remeron.”
