1.75 mg Remeron
is too low
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Remeron 1.75 mg is too low a dose to bother about. Even if you discontinue it abruptly at 1.75 mg, there would be no withdrawal effects.
I agree with you that ativan can cause withdrawal symptoms
if stopped abruptly from 0.5mg three times a day. You need to reduce your ativan tablets that you are taking in the morning. You may reduce one tablet per week and gradually reduce the three that you are taking in three weeks time.
If you are still having anxiety
or depressive symptoms, then it is possible that they arenot the withdrawal symptoms, but symptoms of the primary illness that you were suffering from initially (Depression/anxiety) for which you were started on rameron.
I understand that both rameron and wellbutrin
has not helped you. You may try other options like paroxetine
, escitalopram or citalopram etc. Also there is an option of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This therapy is taken by either a psychologist
or a psychiatrist
in which the therapist identifies impaired cognitions (Thoughts) and try to correct them. They are 15-20 min weekly session and there should be around 8-10 sessions to help you with your illness.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
