Zispin and Remeron are both brand names of mirtazapine. It is an anti-depressant , but works a little differently than the SSRIs.
I was taking Remeron for about a year, but it wasn't working so well and it caused massive weight gain. Mirtazapine (Zispin) makes Paxil look like a diet pill.
Just my opinion, but there are much more effective antidepressant on the market that do not cause this massive weight gain.
You may want to consider Effexor or perhaps even a Tri-cyclic such as Nortriptilyne.
Then again, if the Zispin worked well for you then why change.
It sounds as if it worked very well for you. So, if you're depressed again, I would definitely go back on this medication. Always keep in mind that every medication works differently in different individuals. Every situation and body is unique, so go by what you know has worked for you.
hi olivia ,......i agree with mammo if it worked for you the last time it should work for you now ,..you know you shouldn't stop taking meds when you are feeling well again
if you do thats what will happen to you ,..as you said it is back with a vengeance ,
if i was to stop taking mine i would get so depressed i wouldn't want to live anymore ,and thats without the side effects of coming of them ,
so olivia dont stop taking your meds ,...go back to your d,r, and tell him they where ok when you took them but your feeling very depressed again ,..
when you start to feel good remember it is the meds making to feel good ,
come of them and your back to square one ,.....
good luck and let me know how you get on ,......
