I have depression (feeling flat) not enjoying even my own children which heart me so much and have tried different antidepressants but I don't think I had a good doctor. Now I started Remeron 2 mg for a week but I haven't seen any improvement on sleeping even though I take 0.5mg clonazepam as well. I feel so hopeless..
Hi, Hon, sorry you are having these problems. I have been on Remeron (30mg) nightly for over 8 yrs and its has helped my depression and PTSD. Give it time to work, it takes 4-6 weeks to level out in your system. I didn't even know they made a 2mg as I have only seen 15mg and 30mgs. Give it time to work, after 1 week it is barely in your system. You may discuss this with prescribing doctor, as a dosage increase may be for you. It has really helped me a lot. Good luck and best wishes, ChelleKay.
Hi, antonia! As ChelleKay suggests it would probably be a good idea to talk to your doctor about your dosage:
Usual Adult Dose for Depression
Initial dose: 15 mg orally once a day at bedtime
Maintenance dose: 15 to 45 mg orally once a day
Maximum dose: 45 mg/day
And do give it time to reach peak levels in your system.
Hope you're feeling better soon!
Best regards and good luck. Wildcat
