Hi I have just started Remeron for mainly severe chronic insomnia and am Adult ADD. I have tried almost every other sleep medication out there. My Dr. said this should definitely help me sleep. On low dose 15mg. but may gain weight. She said I may escape that trap if I am dilligent due to being very active, such a low dose and mainly because I am on 30mg Vyvance daily.. I took my first dose last night and WOW...k, I am 58 and come from the days of has brownies. lol That is all I can equate it to, but boy did I sleep. So far today the Vyvance is doing it's thning and I am not craving more food than normal. Please tell me there is someone out there that has not gained an enormous amount of weight because that will make me depressed even though I am taking it for anxiety and not depression. I realize I will have to be dilligent about it. But best nights sleep I have had in Years. Ambien makes me eat constantly until I go to bed and the next day I feel almost suicidal so that is out. Benzos of course are heaven but i build up a tolerance quickly. As my insomnia is chronic I need something I can take nightly and you can't with benzos but lord do I wish you could. They relax me without making me feel different. I have tried other antidepressants for anxiety and insomnia and none other have worked. I have read that many people with add turn to Remeron. I am hoping I have finally found a med that works. Has anyone maintained their weight? Also is there anyone else out there with ADULT ADD taking it? Would love to hear from you. Thanks
