    To all of you who are thinking of stopping the medication because of weight gain, feeling like a zombie, those terrible nightmares, lack of sex drive, etc... I too have had all of these side effects. Before starting treatment on Remeron coupled with Lexapro (after trying every other drug on the market and suffering for 5+ years) I truly was ready to die.

    This medication has done wonders for my depression, anxiety, and sleeplessness. I currently take 30mg with 150mg of Zoloft, and I feel great. As for side effects, even when I'm full. Some people complain about being tired the next day, but it's nothing compared to the exhaustion from not sleeping at all. Overall, this medication is extremely effective.

    I feel like I am a zombie all day long. Can barely manage to do the simplest of tasks. I hate the increase in appetite because I had already gained weight. Have not seen much relief from depression. Don't know if I will continue this med because of the side effects. Also very vivid dreams and nightmares.
