Comments for this study:
Darlene Sherry (3 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...
