Jana, my wife was on this medication for several months having to do witha diagnosis of lewys down dementia and with similar reactions such as u describe. Finally, our neurologist gradually weaned my wife of ALL drugs, resulting in disappearance of all symptoms and gradual overall improvement in her condition to this date. Hope this info will help u.

Side effects can take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks to start tapering off, as your body adjusts to the medication.

However, what you are experiencing is pretty severe. Have you consulted your doctor? This may not be the right medication for you to use.

I took remerom early on for *minor* anxiety after a number of antidepressants had failed to do anything. It knocked me out so badly that my brother said I looked like a zombie, and left me with horrible migraine symptoms after my first week that went undiagnosed for 5 years of therapy and three different doctors until I left and saw a headache specialist (being unaware of the symptoms of a migraine myself).

The migraines are otherwise permanent now and started out with nausea, light sensitivity and distortion, extreme anxiety, panic attacks out of confusion, memory incapacitation, and the irritability that led to the common rage symptoms.

I'm not sure if it is because my doctor put me on at such a high dose initially, and I suddenly stopped because of the effects, which scared me; or the barrage of antipsychotics they put me on afterward during my withdrawal period that essentially ruined my academic career.

I'm now being prescribed remeron again and suffering flashbacks of my rage episodes, but somewhat more lucid now that my headaches are under control. The only problem is that the remeron is lowering my migraine threshold that had been established for over 6 months.

I just applied for disability yesterday realizing they aren't going to get me back to normal any time soon. I had been out of work for the 5 years, and my schooling is stretching out to its 7th year, just to get a bachelor's degree and my associates that I essentially can't even use now.

I was prescribed Mitazapine as an anti depressant and take it at bedtime. It’s a wonderful antidepressant as well as a sleep aid. Try taking it at bedtime and then the dizziness and other side effects that make you dizzy or tired will be beneficial if you have any sleep problems. Just a suggestion. Works for me.
