I know of several friends who have gotten wonderful results on Effexor - I don't know their dosage, however. Did your Dr. rx Remeron for sleep? At this dosage, you will have intense sedation...it could carry over into the morning, too...How are you doing on it? The way Remeron works, as the dosage increases, the sedative intensity decreases -
I'm not familiar with Campral...since you're an Alcoholic, I'd recommend AA - again, friends who were part of it benefited greatly from the relationships they developed as well as the support...especially now at your time of grieving and loss.
I am so sorry to hear about your divorce - you must be devastated. Hang in there...it will get better for you. If you can, again try to get involved in some support group that will give you the encouragement and friendship that's important right now.
Good luck to you...and keep up with your prayer...I always say that one door closes because another one is going to be opening up for us. Sometimes, it does take time but pray for the strength to carry you through....
yes - the remeron was given for sleep - leaves me groggy sometimes in the AM - it is actually 15mg broken in half - is that still aot? 7.5mg? Also, i think the effexor is making my vision blurry thanx
No, as I stated, when you take the lower doses of Remeron, the sedation is higher. As you slowly increase the dose, this effect lessens. Most patients are responding to about 30 mg. I take 30 mg. nightly for my depression. Your Dr. may be planning to slowly increase your dosage...but you should definitely discuss your side effects with him. Perhaps he'll adjust your Effexor dosage. Did you notice the vision impairment on the lower dosage of Effexor?
hi bob, i was on effexor for five years, 75mgs, your dosage sounds a little high but i guess it depends on your height and weight. yes, the effexor could be giving you blurry vision, your body is trying to get used to it. if it continues just ask your dr. about it. stay sober, don't drink while your taking these meds, i'm sure your dr. told you that. my prayers are with you, it will get better if you stick to it and look towards the future. remar
