Hey everyone, I've been on 40mg Paxil for about 4 months, I'm generally happy with it but it is causing insomnia- both trouble getting to sleep, and waking up at 4-5 in the morning. Would it be worth asking my doctor about prescribing Remeron (maybe 15mg) to take at night to help me sleep?
Hello Robert Dufresne. Certainly. I take this combination myself. There is a down side, both are culprits for increasing your appetite and weight gain. I take the Remeron (off label) for sleep. Paxil for anxiety. Regards pledge
Hi, i just wanted to add that there is a risk of serotonin syndrome by using these 2 medications together. It is very rare, but just get your doctor to check you out for signs of this at regular intervals. The medications i use carry the same potential side effect and i am fine, but just to warn you. I hope you have as much success as pledge has. I know how horrible insomnia can be!
