Advice & Tips: Hopefully they changed this, but the way the REMERON SOL TABS were packaged (some type of blister pack) made them nearly impossible to open! It was very difficult and required extreme dexterity. REMERON is a strange drug. The more you take, the LESS severe the fatigue side-effect becomes. Thus, if one were to use REMERON as a sleep-aid, a doctor may likely prescribe only 15mg nightly. Higher doses mean less fatigue. having said that, I was surprised by how much energy I had when I went off the drug completly
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Depressed mood)
  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Weight gain)
  • Side Effects
    Moderate (Somnolence)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: this pill does make me quite sleepy. I learned on PLM that others here have experienced the same side effect, even more so at a lower dose and less so at a higher dose. My p-doc said I could take one or two pills at bedtime. Taking 1/2 a pill makes me MUCH sleepier than taking 1 or 2. I usually take 1, but sometimes just a half if I really want to get good sleep. I've yet to try taking 2, but perhaps I will to see if sleepiness-effect is less. The only bad thing about the sleepiness if it's hard to wake up in the morning, I just want to keep sleeping!
Cost: < $25 monthly
