Any experience with Remeron?
« on: Today at 08:37:16 PM »
I spoke to my doctor this week about trying an anti-depressant. He recommended Wellbutrin. But I read that it can worsen anxiety and cause insomnia, and I am experiencing both. So I did research on Remeron. It seems to help with insomnia and may help with anxiety as well as depression. But it can also cause excessive sleepiness and increased weight gain and increased cholesterol. I am also considering trying natural supplements such as Holy Basil and Sam-e. At the moment I take Ativan 0.5 to 1 mg and Melatonin 3mg and a cup of chamomile tea before bed. But I still wake up at 3 or 4 am with anxiety and insomnia.
I meet with a counselor weekly. He doesn't comment much about medications when I bring them up. He suggested today that maybe try getting up and doing something creative if I wake up anxious at 3am. Perhaps paint or do a project and use that time in a constructive way to deal with my fears and anxieties, instead of laying in bed and ruminating on those thoughts.
I had labs drawn this week. I have been on Triumeq now for almost 8 weeks. Hoping that labs will be reassuring.
