Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I'm mentally foggy, have trouble remembering things, and can hardly relax though I'm tired while taking this drug (Mirtazapine). My sugar and carb cravings have increased a lot. The problem is, when I reduce the dose, I have trouble with depression.


  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Have been on Adderall, which is helpful with energy levels and not falling asleep. However, in combination with recently started Remeron 7.5mg (which is supposed to make me tired), I have not been able to sleep even with Lunesta. I have noticed increased anxiety and heart rate (116 bpm - before the Remeron it was 95 bpm). Also have noticed 'bouncing' thoughts and grandiose thoughts. I had a similar reaction with Adderall in combination with Cymbalta 60mg in the past (much more severe with Cymbalta however). I was on the Cymbalta for 1 week and it took an additional week to become completely 'symptom free' from that episode. Dr states that Remeron WILL NOT cause these symptoms, however they were not there before Remeron was started.
