Does anyone take remeron and an SSRI eg prozac or effexor.
a few years ago. However, the Remeron added weight so quickly, I got off it very quickly. It is hard enough with Effexor to keep weight just even let alone lose.
So, that's my experience. I really don't remember any different feelings as I wasn't on it long enough, but the weight thing was just too much!
How are you doing on the combo?
I tried both yeears back-REMERON made me fat and more depressed....Prozac gave me headaches and did nothing but added to my depression!
NOT ALL ANTI-depress work! They can make you worse!
Quite a number of years ago, I took Remeron and Paxil at the same time. Within two months I gained 20 pounds.
Several years after that go-round, I tried Remeron again (Duh) and immediately had a HUGE appetite. Gained 5 pounds in 4 days. At that time I weighed 120 pounds, so those pounds were significant. I hated Remeron. I was SOOO much more depressed because of the weight. Obviously, it didn't work for me.
