Seriously – I was constantly running and could not sleep. And I started to feel better, by leaps and bounds, even in regards to eating…
– A month of Remeron and still can’t feel any relief… on the contrary: the dreams were kind of rough, fat, vision decreased.
– Several years use of Remeron gave me the serenity and hepatitis. That is, the liver did not stand continuous use of antidepressant. But – you have to choose…
– And me more suited to paxil. Remeron and too expensive, and too “angry” – I become aggressive.
