I weighed 93 pounds in August of 2015 started taking 15mg Remeron nightly (still am) and today March 10 2016 I weigh 138.4 and look pregnant? Anyone else have this problem? I love the weight but not the gut.

    Abby,

    I start remeron march 2014 when i weighed 80 lbs. I was on 7.5 mg upped to 15 mg and then upped to 30 mg. My weight is 116. But since i went to 30 mg i noticed the cravings arent that bad. Its what you eat and exercise that causes it. I have been able to maintain my weight with running, weight lifting and eating healthy lean meats, whole grains, and veggies and for snacks when i want like ice cream i eat artic zero icecream 135 cals per whole container!!!!

    Hi abby

    yes! I do, it's really annoying and will be interested to learn how common this is. I think my eating is causing me too feel so tired too. Are you feeling better generally? I guess that's the real important thing.

    I do in general feel much better I eat and sleep very well.. Last night I started drinking lemon juice & water to be sure I didn't have much water weight, and to loose some of the bloating feeling in my stomach

    Abby, did you have really bad anxiety when you first started Mirtazapine ? My doc wants me to go on it. I have OCD and my Paxil quit working and I've been on it for 15 years. It's a hard drug to come off of. My anxiety and depression is so bad I can't titrate the Paxil until I get stable on another drug. I've lost 25 pounds so I need to gain weight
