Remeron is a prescription drug that is used to fight depression. Remeron helps to balance the chemicals in the brain. These chemicals known as norepinephrine and serotonin become imbalanced and cause depression. Common symptoms of depression such as worthlessness, guilt, loss of interest in normal activities, sadness, appetite changes, lethargy, insomnia and sleeping too much, and thoughts of suicide are alleviated when using this medication.

Common side effects associated with this medication are drowsiness, dizziness, increase in appetite, weight gain, nausea, dry mouth, constipation, and mild tremors. These side effects are normal, and should not deter you from continuing to take this medication. Other more serious side effects are seizures, rapid heart rate, and irregular heart rate. Flu like symptoms have also been reported by patients. These symptoms include fever, sore throat, chills, and sores that are found in the mouth and nose. Allergic reactions sometimes occur and should be relayed to the doctor immediately. Signs of allergic reactions include having a hard time breathing, and swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat. It is important that patients report these side effects immediately, as they could be life threatening.

Remeron has been known to cause drowsiness in some patients. Care must be taken when driving or operating machinery until you know how Remeron will affect you. Alcohol increases these effects, so it should be avoided while taking this medication.

Remeron falls into pregnancy category C. This means that there is not adequate information to determine whether or not it will harm an unborn baby. It is also unknown as to whether or not Remeron is passed into breast milk. This medication is not intended for children.

Take Remeron only as prescribed by your doctor. If you have missed a dose, do not double up. This may cause accidental overdose. Skip the missed dose and take the next dose on schedule. If you experience confusion, drowsiness, rapid heart rate or poor memory, seek emergency medical attention immediately as these may be signs of an overdose.
