    I know this is an old post, but I stopped taking Remeron all together about 2 months ago. No side effects (except not sleeping) was the best decision ever.

    Sorry, I forgot to say that I stopped four days ago. No longer hungry, but I am anxious. I stopped cold. My dosage was 30mg. I suspect that Remeron slows down the body's metabolism. I am just guessing. You are taking this drug for three years so mayb - 14% more...

    The only thing that makes sense to me is that the body's metabolism decreases. I do not know this for sure, but I have read so many posts that state people have tried to exercise more and eat less while taking Remeron, but still gain weight.
