Comments for this study:

Darlene Sherry (2 years ago):

I am a 48 year old female. I started taking Remeron about 4 months ago. Started at 15 mg.and after 2 months increased to 30mg. I went to my Gynocologist with an incredible increase of Libido. Constantly at a state of orgasim. I thought something was terrible wrong as I am also having hot flashes and in menopause. I thought maybe I had some kind of tumor that was pushing on something to make me feel this increase of libido. As we went through all of my medication, before he was about to order a boat load of hormone tests, we got to the Remeron. He found in a big book of RARE side effects, increased libido on Remeron. I have lowered the dose back to 15mg but it has yet to slow down. I wouldn't mind this at a much lower dose but cannot go on like this...

Can you answer these questions (what is this?):

  • What medications cause hair loss
    Been experiencing hair loss for several months and the loss has increased the last couple of months. My doctor ran thyroid test and it was normal. The loss has been gradual and it is not breaking off, but coming out at the root.

  • Safe for sleep
    is this for sleep? lots of side effects - has anyone used this. how about the next day, are you alert or how does this drug stay in the body and what are the effects.

  • How likely is it that celexa will increase blood pressure?
    I have been taking Remeron 15 mg for a few months and recently added 5 mg Celexa. My systolic blood pressure went up immediately; it had been mostly in the high 120's and now is 140+. Is this a coincidence, or could the Celexa be causing it?
