I just started Effexor and Remeron, the so-called “California Rocket Fuel”. I’m wondering if the side effects will taper off. I am taking 75 mg Effexor XR and 45 mg Remeron. I don’t really notice anything psychological except feeling calmly energized. I’m taking it for depression and panic. I hope the dry mouth, racing heart and trouble swallowing go away!
Hi. I took this combination last year for about 3 months. I started the remeron first and had similar negative symptoms to what you are describing for a few weeks. I added the Effexor a few months later (minimal side effects) and took both medications for about 3 months before being weaned off the remeron. Only on Effexor now and feeling good. Good luck
