Remeron has been associated with increased appetite and weight gain. Some antidepressants that causes less weight again include Wellbutrin, Celexa, and Trazodone.
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.
Have you tried serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI's) such as Effexor, Cymbalta, or Pristiq? Perhaps, this class of drugs may work for you.
