Can you take Remeron safely with Multaq (taken for the control of A-fib)
I've tried 4 other anti-depressants, bad side effects. I don't take them well. Only low dose Xanax (only take up to 2 daily) helps on bad days.
The depression isn't everyday, but often enough to cause concern at times.

I'm dealing with physical symtoms of lightheadedness and nausea too and though I have an inner ear condition, wonder if the depression could cause these symptoms too?

I see a Neuro doctor soon to rule out anything going on neurologically.
Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated. I'm in my mid 70's and otherwise in good health. I do see a therapist--that's helping and really am hoping I don't have to take meds! Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
