I have been prescribed remeron to help the benzos taper. It really helps a lot but I noticed an important weight gain since I take it. I googled it and foud out it was for the treatment of anorexia as well!!!
Having a thyroid condition, I watch out A LOT what I eat, no fat no white sugar and as little carbs as I can. Even with the diet, I did put on about 10 kg in 3 months without changing anything in my diet. I was wondering if there was a medication similar to remeron w/o the weight gain side effect?
Thanx a lot for your time. sophie.
I have followed your advice and talked to my dr about your alternatives.
I have tried SSRI's in the past (3 different ones Milnacipran, Prozac and Citalopram) and they just didn't kick in.
Since the remeron had such a good effect on me except for the weight gain, he tried to stay in the same family. He prescribed me trazodone but I had an allergic reaction to it, my heart was bouncing out of my chest.
I am currently on wellbutrin for 3 weeks and I now have some kind of rash, urticaria for 3 days. I just called my dr and he asked me to stop immediately since the rash is around my eyes as well.
He seems to believe that we don't have any options left...
Do you have any advice on which direction I have to go now?
Thank you so much for your help.
