Remeron is usually prescribed for the treatment of major depression, which is a continuous depressed mood that interferes with your daily experience at work, school or with your family.  The symptoms of major depression usually involve low mood, reduced energy, lack of interest in normal activities, changes in appetite and weight, difficulty sleeping, either fidgeting or slowing down of physical movements, fatigue, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, difficulty concentrating, difficulty thinking and sometimes suicidal thoughts. 

How does Remeron work? 

Remeron is believed to work by adjusting the balance of certain neurochemicals in your brain involved in thinking. These neurochemicals or chemical messengers are referred to as norepinephrine and serotonin and this antidepressant belongs to the class of drugs known as tetracyclics, which are chemically related to other antidepressants such as the serotonin reuptake inhibitors and the MAO inhibitors. 


What else should I know about this antidepressant? 

This depression medication has been known to make people drowsy or less alert, and may also affect your thinking or judgment.  You should not drive or perform any hazardous activity until you're well aware of how this medication effects you. 

When should Remeron not be prescribed? 

You should not take Remeron if you have ever had an allergic reaction to similar drugs such as Ludiomil and Desyrel.  You should obviously tell your doctor if you have ever had any adverse drug reactions to this or similar drugs.  You should also avoid Remeron if you are taking the MAO antidepressants Nardil or Parnate.
