Can you tell me more about how long you been on the remeron & it's effects on your body?
3-4 years on Remeron some sedation at night
One thing I want to make sure about is that you're not experiencing any type of "hangover" effect from remeron.
The reason I say this is that you say your energy level gets better at night.
Ok, so let's take a step back. You were on celexa (and already on remeron) about 8 weeks ago. Why did you switch to effexor?
to try something "better"
So were you still experiencing some depression with the celexa and wanted to see if there was a better med? How was your energy level on the celexa before the med change?
You said your energy became worse with effexor. Were there any other changes with effexor?
Also, what time of day do you take the celexa.
better than now , became worse on effexro
celexa @ remeron in PM
So the good news is that as the effects of the effexor's effect on your body goes away, your energy level should improve to at least as good as it was before.
For someone 88yo, it would take your body no more than 2 weeks to flush the effexor out of your system.
