Shebon: intro and brief history


Shebon

Recommended Posts

Hi All:

I have been taking 3.75 mg. of generic remeron daily for the past 4.5 years.  About a month ago, I thought I should taper off by reducing to 1/8 of the 15 mg. pill that I had been cutting into quarters for the 3.75 mg. dosing.  Around day 26 of the taper, I started getting GERD, heartburn, insomnia, dizziness, all the usual suspects. 

 

I upped my dose back to 3.75 about 3 nites ago.  I thought I was on my way to feeling stable again, but last nite came no sleep, with sweating, racing thoughts, and diarrhea.  This a.m., I feel so terrible.

 

My question is:  how long to expect the withdrawal symptoms of the taper on the way back up to my pre-taper dose.  I felt fine while taking this amt and was prescribed it for insomnia and post menopause symptoms.  Now I realize I may be a life member of the remeron suckers club.

 

Hope to hear from those who have had similar experiences.

Hi Shebon, welcome to SA,  In order to taper a small dose of remeron you will need either a liquid solution from the pharmacy or you can make a liquid from tablets. Then you will need to taper slowly to avoid withdrawal. Remeron is an awful drug and needs tapering carefully but it isn't easy when cutting tablets. It is likely that the pieces were not equal when cutting into 8, which would have meant the doses were different as well as cutting the dose by 50%  You did your best and I am not in any way criticising, just expleining why you feel so bad. I thought a low dose of effexor would be easy to taper but I was wrong, the lower doses are harder! 

It is 3 days since reinstating 3.75, it takes 4 days to reach a steady state in the blood so hopefully you will see an improvement. Did you feel any better after updosing?   Hold that dose until you have been stable for a few months. This is to let your nervous system settle down again before restarting a taper. 

 

 You can dissolve a tablet in water, then use an oral syringe to get the right dose. You can get 1ml oral syringes from the pharmacy, and can use as much water as you need to get the correct dose. You can keep the solution in the fridge. It will need a good shake so the particles are fully mixed. Withdrawal insomnia is terrible but should settle down as you stabilise.  I will post some links for you.

Lesson learned, slow down taper at lower doses. Taper no more than 10% of CURRENT dose if possible

Thank you MamaP and Chessie for your replies.  I never expected this reaction from reducing a small dose. 

 

Hopefully, I will stabilize (and celebrate!).

Best regards,

Hi...I hope Alto and Chessie remember me.

 

I had been on 3.75 mg. remeron for 3 1/2 years.  In July, I decided to taper off the remeron (cut 1/4 in half -- 1/87 mg. ) as I was feeling pretty good after a long benzo recovery.

 

Day 26 of the 50% reduction brought on heartburn, GERD, hot flushes, and insomnia.  I went back up to my pre-taper dose of 3.75 mg. on day 3- of the taper, and just had nite 9 of 3.75 mg.  While I have had (5) good days/nites since updosing, last nite was another sleepless nite (have had (3) of these).  With burning, tingly body feelings, nausea, diarrhea, intrusive thoughts.  I am wondering how long to expect before I stabilize on my previous dose again.  I could shoot myself for doing this taper and wish I had never done this.  Seems like last nite/this a.m. was worse than any others.

 

Should I go up higher on my dose or wait it out?

How are you getting your dose?  Are you still cutting your tablets?  Or have you got/are you making a liquid?

5 out of 9 good days is a good sign that updosing is working.  It may take a few more weeks for your symptoms to settle.  Please see the topics I posting about especially windows and waves.

 

Sleep problems - that awful withdrawal insomnia

 

It's important not to get caught up being anxious about the symptoms (this adds stress) and to use non drug techniques to keep yourself as calm as possible.

Hi Chessie:

You are one great big blessing to me right now!!:rolleyes:

 

I use a pill cutter to split the 15 mg. tab into quarters -- I try to make them as equal in size as I possibly can.  So, you're thinking I will stabilize again with just the 3.75 mg. dose that I was taking pre-taper.  Don't go up in dosing?

 

On a few of the good days I have had, I think I overexerted myself with 4 mile hikes, zumba, weights, etc.  I am just going to take it easy until I reach the pre-taper place.

 

I know I have PTSD from having lived through benzo WDS when I went off in 4/2011.  It's scary because the symptoms are so scary.  I am quite familiar with the windows and waves of WDs that I thought I would never experience them again.  But voila, here I go doing a stupid thing too fast and back to the WDs, which are frightening. 

 

Thanks for your quick response....so very much needed right now.

Hi Hopefull:

 

I will be traveling the first few weeks of June so I decided to get down to my taper after the travel.  But I did something stupid; took magnesium/calcium one hour before remeron (10 p.m.) for four days and it threw me back into the withdrawals.  Go figure....I should know calcium will interfere with remeron absorption.  Live and learn right?

 

How is your taper going?  Are you using the regular mirt and not the soluable tabs?  I think I will be sticking with the regular mirt and not switching over.  Your thoughts??

 

Love hearing from you!!

Hi Everyone:

 

Just an update to my current situation with tapering down from 3.75 mg.  I have now reduced by 50% to 1.87 mg. mirt.  I started the taper 1/1/20.  So 6.5 months later, I have reached my first big milestone.  

 

Symptoms come and go but were worse at the start of the taper.  I will hold at 1.87 for 1-2 months and then resume again with my modified CITA taper.  The 1/8 piece of the 15 mg. tablet is quite small but I figure I can still cut a piece of that in half and start over with the 6 nites at 1.87 mg. mirt and 1 nite of .93 mg. mirt.  Hold this for a month and then add 2 nites of .93 mg. mirt in, and so on down for another 6.5 months until I am at .93 mg. mirt.  It is a SLOW process, but I think healing is happening as one tapers and that is a huge benefit.  

 

Cheers,

Shevbon

Hi Shebon. Congrats on getting to your halfway milestone. You're getting close! I remember when I was that low on trazodone I couldn't weight it anymore as it was not registering.

What I did was crushing a small piece on a mirror and dividing it by 2, then dividing it again and again until I had a bunch of very tiny equal amounts. I did this on a big flat mirror with a razor blade. I had lots tiny doses at a time set to take every night. I would make new ones when I ran out. I put a dab of peanut butter on my finger and touched the dose. It stuck on it and I licked it off. Like a druggie lol. That is how I tapered off the tiny bits of trazodone. Marie.

Hi Marie:

 

Thank you for the info on how you crushed tiny pieces and used peanut butter to stick them and put into the mouth!  Brilliant idea and it worked for you.   This is another tip that will come in handy!

 

Ripley:

How are you doing?  Looks like you are on your way....Are you feeling stabilized again?

 

Onward and downward in tapering we go!

To get the effect of magnesium (for calming/anxiety) it should be taken 2 hours apart from calcium, otherwise the calcium cancels out the magnesium.

Hi Marie:

 

I have gone hyper on my thyroid meds at least 5 times.  The symptoms are much like benzo and AD withdrawals.   I did find an article that showed one taking Prozac needed to take more thyroid med.  So I deduced that if we are tapering lower on the  mirt, we do not need as much thyroid med.  

 

I had gone off my thyroid med for almost a year (2017-2018) and I did great.  My mirt dose was 3.75 mg.  I fell asleep fine and why I went back on is still a puzzle to me today.  Interesting thing about levothyroxine - the half life is 7 days.  It will build up in the system.  Just trying to even out now (0.125 mcg Synthroid every other day) which can take about 2 months and then I plan to reduce mirt again.  I have been doing well with my reducing mirt and I know the symptoms of overdosed thyroid meds very well.  It comes on suddenly and gets worse for about 2 months.  

 

Onward and downward?

Best regards,

Shebon

Shebon I like your first posting...a member of the Remeron Suckers Club. I had a good laugh on that one. I hope I never have to mess with thyroid meds. I've never had it checked, so no news is good news. It seems you got a good handle on how to taper it while cutting the Mirt too. We'll finish up in time. Be well. Marie.
