Help! Remeron and Cymbalta

Has anyone ever experienced anger/rage while taking Remeron? I recently tapered off Cymbalta slowly while introducing Remeron. I’m having extreme bouts of rage with no regard to anything, very far from the person I normally am. I don’t know if this is being caused by Cymbalta withdrawal or the Remeron. By the way - the week where I was on 15 Remeron and 15 cymbalta I was very energetic and positive, hyper productive. Obviously something is not right here. Could it be that this is just what I’m like without Cymbalta? Am I rapid cycling? I’ve never been officially diagnosed with bipolar 2 (mainly mdd and anxiety) but I’ve taken lamictal and cymbalta for 10 years after two suicide attempts. I’ve tried other drugs before that as well. Right now I am only ...

I also have the strange sensation of moveing my head guickly like the guy who asked about any drug interaction of remeron and Nuvigil, Please somebody help? ## Hello, Don! How are you doing? Has anything improved, yet? It sounds like one or both may be causing some vertigo and tinnitus, the two often go hand in hand. Learn more Remeron details here. If it got worse, when you increased the Remeron, then that means it could be the culprit. Have you contacted your doctor, again? It must might not be the right medication for you. ## I have been taking Remeron for about 15 years and never noticed ringing in my ears until I started on pain me...

Anxiety Remeron Seroquel Klonopin

I have been prescribed Remeron 15mg and Klonopin 0.5 for anxiety and lack of sleep. After 40 days I still have too much anxiety and racing thoughts to fall asleep, and I've gained no weight. So my Dr put me on Seroquel XR 150 mg one week ago (Aug 14) and will be able to fill a new Rx for Ativan to try on Aug 30 once the Klonopin Rx is "completed". The Klonopin no longer helps with anxiety as I get those dreaded warm rushes of pain the fill my face, neck, chest, and arms even after I take one. I'm reaching out for help because as I transition from Remeron to Seroquel it's still hard to fall asleep and the grogginess during the day is torture. What meds or combo has anyone taken to help fall asleep, slow the racing thoughts, decrease anxiety and agitatation, and just h...

I could have been killed. ## Hello, Peter! How are you? I am so ver...

Remeron(Mirtazapine) Diapam(Diazepam)

Dear Pharmacist, I am 52-year-old man. I take Remeron(Mirtazapine) for anxiety and depression. I started to use this medication about one week ago. I take the medication in the evening. I read in the patient information leaflet that I should not drink alcohol. How many hours after I take the medication is it safe to drink? Sometimes I drive to work by car. When I had the medication dispensed in the pharmacy, they said that the medication can cause drowsiness. Can I drive If I use this medication? I also use Diapam(Diazepam), is it safe to take these medications together?

Remeron and SymGen

Hi, I am 47 years of age , male and have anxiety disorder. I have been using Remeron 30mg for almost a year and a half with mild effect. My doctor then prescribed symgen 30mg as well which leads to heavy heart palpitations and something like a shortness of breath in the mornings (This is the only way I can describe it.) Can I simply stop the cymgen or should I wait a little longer for these side effects to subcide. ## Hey. I can't answer your question. But I'm on same combo as you. Its good but weight gain is terrible! Do you know if I can stop taking remeron suddenly after 9 years and continue with cymgem without getting bad side effects? ## Hello, Charles! How are you? How long have you been taking the Cymgen? Side effects are typically transient and taper off in severity, the...

remeron and qsymia

has anyone taken Qsymia to loss the weight gained by being on Remeron (Mirtazapine)? ## Hello, Basset Gal! How are you? There are two issues here, the first is that it is never a good idea to take another medication to try to treat a side effect that has been caused by a different one. Doing that just tends to compound the side effect problems. And the second issue is that the weight problem will continue, as long you keep taking the Remeron, so you'd just really be trying to fight a losing battle. The best thing to do, if they Remeron has caused you to gain a significant amount of weight would be to speak to your doctor about trying a different medication, such as Prozac, that isn't known to cause weight gain. Side effects to it may include nausea, dizziness, headache and weigh...

I was perscibed 30 mgs. of remeron and 200mgs. of zoloft. Then was told to increase the dose of remeron to 45mgs. the ringing in the ears got worse. It is a loud pierceing wine, ## Hello, Don! How are you doing? Sorry about the tinnitus. Has it eased up, at all, yet? It is difficult to say what might be causing it, it is often a side effect of medications, but could also be entirely unrelated. Have you consulted your doctor? When was the last time you had a hearing exam?
