    In the quite sometime ago in a psych ward I was prescribed Remeron for depression. It made me so sleepy oh and hungry all the time. At the time I was so under weight and it dawned on me oh I see what they are doing...dealing with the depression and trying to put some weight on me. And oh did it put the weight on. I went off it ...dont remember when cuz its been so far back and dont remember why. I was put on something else and dont remember what. It might have been Lamictal as I was diagnosed Bipolar around that time.
