A dose of 7.5 mg is a very low dose and your doctor may titrate it up in few weeks depending on how well you tolerate it. The usual starting dose for may patient is 15mg and can be increased up to 45mg a day. It is usually taken for 6 months at a time once its effectiveness has been established.

How do you get off remeron that is the question I should have asked started with 30 the 15 and now 7.5 stopped 7.5 an got very high anxiety.

Expert:  Dr. Singh replied 4 years ago.
Since you are taking 7.5mg, to go lower you may take the medications every other day for 1-2 weeks before stopping. You can also ask your doctor to prescribe a short acting benzodiazepines to help with anxiety while you are coming off Remeron.
