How to know if remeron is for you or not?

Posted , 3 users are following.


I am 25,About a couple of months ago, I was on a burnout followed by panic attacks and one day my body just  stopped on me. I couldnt get out of bed, I started freaking myself out because I had no idea what was happening to me and then developed anxiety, stress, couldn't sleep or eat.I had lost so much wait, I was practically skin and bones.It's always easier to understand when you are having a physical problem as appose to a mental one! 

Anyways, I just recently went on remeron 15mg, my first antidepressant about 1 and a half months ago.I mainly started taking remeron because I couldnt eat nor sleep and also felt very anxious and sad because I had no idea what had happend to me and basically I felt as if my life had just stopped before my eyes. Couldn't work or do anything.

I have to admit that my sleep is better and I do eat more then I was before. My problem is that ever since I have been taking the remeron 15mg I have got headshocks, always feel tired, have this constant pressure on my head (headache like), mussel pains,chest throbbing, fast heart rates at times, no energy and zero emotion. I went to see my doctor and told her what I was feeling and she suggested I up the dose to 30mg..  I am skeptical about the 30mg because I feel as if I am trading in one problem for another.

All in all, I feel as if remeron has only helped me with sleep and eating. Also, it has helped me not cry but then again, I kind of prefer crying then having no emotion. I feel as if my main problem anxiety is still there and on top of it I gained so much more problems. I fear the 30mg beacause i fear having more complications. Can anyone give me advice on if I should come off of these meds or try the 30mg?

Thank you
