This is for everyone wondering about Remeron withdrawal. First off let me say stop with all these horror stories giving people false hope! I was one of them! I have withdrawal from 7 medications since August of last year, Zyprexa, Depakote, propranolol, Seroquel, Valium, Remeron, and Lamictal. I did all these myself and help of my faith, but back to remeron. I was on 15mg of Remeron for 11 years. Now it was much easier than I expected, but did have trouble with nausea, loss of appetite, insomnia, and anxiety. Now I cut the 15 to 7.5 for 2 weeks, for 5 days I had heightened anxiety, and for 2 weeks insomnia, and nausea. Now the nausea, and insomnia were easy. Zofran once a day, and Phenergan to sleep with melatonin. I’m also prescribed Klonopin so anxiety wasn’t much a problem. The best thing to do to beat insomnia, because it has been 2 months and I still kinda have it but take Benadryl at bedtime with gabapentin and melatonin. But don’t replace Remeron with another sleeping pill. Get off it with melatonin and Benadryl, and exercise. I’m only on 300mg of gabapentin, and that’s my next drug to taper off of, and I have found a way to get off that with no withdrawals. But that’s for another post. So do not listen to these stupid horror stories, I have gad, and I came off it smoothly, but you will need medication for nausea, and nothing better than Phenergan for night and Zofran for the day. I promise you, it was simple and I was on it for 11 years,2 weeks on 7.5 then jumped off. Do this on easy weeks. It’s not bad
