    Major (for Depression with Insomnia)
  • Side effects
    Severe (weight gain, drowsiness)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Also one of the worst medicine possible!! Massive weight gain. 30kg in 3 months! Just couldn't stop eating. Always hungry. It helped me fall asleep but I awakened quite quickly cus of the huge hunger that wouldn't go away how much I ate. The doctors didnt listen to me cus they thought that as long as I slept a little bit and didn't want to kill myself, beeing fat and terribly hungry was OK. Bullshit.
Side effects: increased appetite, drowsiness, weight gain

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for major depressive disorder)
  • Side effects
    Severe (weight gain, excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence))
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 45 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This drug was fantastic except for the excessive sleepiness. It took care of my depression and my anxiety and I slept much better at night. I would definitely recommend it to other to try, because if you can handle the side effects I think it is a fantastic drug. After only a few months I had to stop taking it. I ended up having a car accident because I was way to tired. I called my psychiatrist while I was still in the car to tell him I had to get off the Remeron.
