I recently went see my Physician because I've been having trouble sleeping. He prescribed Remoron Oral to help me sleep but I only slept for five hours the first few nights that I took it. Tonight I haven't slept at all! The anxiety attacks I have been getting lately are worrying me as well. I don't think I can take this medicine anymore.

I have only been taking Remeron for a few days. I can report that my eating habits have improved considerably. I have felt like I'm somewhere in space, but that's okay, it's worth it.
