For those of you who take remeron for a sleep aid as well as an AD, what mg are you on? I'm on my 2cd week of 30 mg, and I know it takes 4 weeks to work as an antidepressant, but I'm still not having the best sleep. I read some posts that 15mg is for insomnia, and after that you can get wired. Can you tell me what mg you are on and if it is an effective sleep aid as well as AD?

I was just started on Remeron a week 1/2 ago at 15mg for insomnia, anxiety, and depression. All the usual meds (SSRI etc) weren't working anymore. The first couple days I took it accidently in am and wow, zombie city. I did not nap though because although it made me groggy, my anxiety was almost, pretty close to GONE. This is great because I suffer from SAD, GAD, and panic attacks, (along with depression and insomnia). I can't function at 30mg where the doctor wants me, in fact 7.5 is the best right now. I give it a thumbs up so far.
BTW: now that I take it at night like I'm supposed to, insomnia isn't an issue.

I just took 15 mg. of Remeron last night for the first time. For the firs time in several years, I slept through the whole night but woke up rather groggy. But it was worth it as I've been on sleeping pills for ten years and most of them don't work any more. I usually take a dose of temazapan with a small dose of valium to help me get to sleep but I wake up in the middle of the night and have to take another does of the same drugs. I'm going to stay on Remeron unless I experience any side effects. So far, so good.
