    Wondering what kind of experiences people have had with remeron. I've been useing wellbutrin for 2 years and have felt good on it exept for uncontrollable hunger and a 30 pound weight gain. Would be grateful for some insight on remeron. thanks.

    I was recently put on remeron and it did not work for me.  Each one of us is different so different meds work differently on each individual.  I also have tried wellbutrin which did not work for me either but it sounds like it worked for you.  I believe most all anti-depressants make an individual gain weight as I have gained weight as well.  Something I think the FDA needs to work on!  Noone likes to gain unnecessary weight. It is unhealthy and makes us feel depressed which is the problem we are trying to correct in the first place.

    Wellbutrin had no effect on me, even though my sister was  taking it.

    Remeron was the worst---for me---medication. It sedated me to the point of feeling like a robot. It interfered w/my gross motor skills (stumbled, etc.), and I gained weight.

    So no affect and weight gain for me!


    I went back to Zoloft and asked my doctor to give me something for my sleep problems

    But as Cindy said in her response to you earlier it's very hard to predict what will work for each individual.

    Zoloft has stopped working for me after 2 years and I am switching to Pristiq slowly. I just hope it works for me.


    By the time you read my response, I wish that you have found the right anti-depressant for YOU, whichever one it is.Smile
