remeron

i stopped taking remeron a couple of days ago. the doctor put me on it for the side effect of weight gain. i haven't gained a pound in the 4 months that i have been taking it. i don't really suffer from depression too much. when i got down to the last 2 pills i took them every other night. i have a new job starting this week. although i am well versed in stopping opiates, this is new to me. i am not really worried but forwarned is forarmed. spelling? any thoughts?
  to everyone quitting opiates: don't give up! you can do it! peace, sway

Hi Hun,

Good to see you!

Oddly enough, my mom was on Remeron. What I do recall from it was that the doctor did a quick taper with her to come off of it. One every other day and so on type of thing but it is best to let your doctor recommend a schedule.

I am so happy for you with the new job. Best of luck.

Let's talk soon!!
