    My doc just changed me from Zoloft to Remeron. The Zoloft may not be keeping me awake where Remeron is suppossed to make me rest better. I get no stage 3 or 4 sleep. I am also taking Mirapex to help with the sleep. I am going to do a second sleep study soon, with the meds to see if they are working. I just never heard of Remeron.

    I have been taking Remeron for three years now. I have tried everything on the market and nothing worked. Remeron does not make me pass out but it allows me to get some real sleep when i do lay down at night. I also take 2 hawthorn berrie capsules a supplement and it enhances the Remeron's effects. I do not feel bad in the morning and it has really helped my sleep.

    It made me into a zombie and I couldn't take it because I have 3 little girls. I need to be at least semi-alert.

    Thank you for everyone's responses. I know each person has a unique chemical makeup, so it will work differently on each person, so for me, I was able to wake up during the night with my toddler,(but boy was I tired and wish she would go back to sleep), I got up at 6:30 just to make my husband a pot of coffee before he went to work and I felt like somewhat of a zombie. I was just slow about everything. My pain was awful as usual, but I did feel sleepy. So much for night one, I'll see how the rest of the week goes. Doc says with better rest I should feel less exhausted during the day.

    I have been feeling so useless and worthless because I don't have the ability to do anything. I would be happy to be somewhat normal and get anything accomplished!

    I want my life back !!!!!! I hear so much more on the media now about Fibromyalgia and more people have heard of it now, so maybe the research will pick up and we can find a cure or anything to let us live a quality life again.

    Best of luck to everyone.
