I ask a question about Elavil awhile back and if I should try it. I talk to my Dr. about it and he put me on Remeron which is in the same family as Elavil. Ive not taken it yet out of fear of reactions Ive had from the other 7 AD's Ive been on. Has anyone taken Remeron for anxiety disorders/panic attacks/depression??? Im at my wits end with trying all this meds, and suffering through this for going on 2 yrs now!! HELP!!! 2009-2010 were very hard for me, and now so far, 2011 isnt looking much better!!! Im tired of being tired, Im tired of being anxious, scared out of my mind, tired of waking up each day and my thoughts going directly straight to death, either of someone close to me or myself. Wondering "Will I die today?" I really cant just do this anymore. Im not suicidal at all, just the opposite. I WANT to live, but I feel like Im not until all this craziness gets under control. Im too scared to try to live.

It sounds like you are very upset so I am going to try to ease your mind some if I can. I am too am on Remeron and it has helped me a great deal. I can finally get some sleep which I haven't done in a few years. I too have severe depression and at one time was on Paxil which was the greatest thing that ever happened to me, I found out there is life out there it helped with my depression and anxiety a lot but they had to take me off it because of putting me on Cymbalta for Fibromyalgia but I am stil functioning with the Cymbalta and Remeron. The Remeron helps me sleep so that I can function during the day and the anxiety isn't as bad. I would suggest to you tat you get started on the Remeron like you doctor says and see what it does for you maybe if you can sleep your depression and anxiety won't be so bad and I would also suggest if you are not already getting some steady counseling.
This is a good place to also come for support and there are some good people here, yes everything has its issues like anything else but there are good people here and maybe by getting some support and taking your medicine you can start to see the light again. I hope I have helped you some. Take care, marjorie zych
