Have been on remeron since Feb this year and Concerta since August. Have gained 15 pounds, but at least sleeping straight thru, before used to wake up every 3 hours approx. Am concerned about weight gain. Wondering what else might work for sleep. melatonin makes me feel hung over.

Taking the mirtazapine at night might work for you.

Perhaps talk to your doctor about trazodone. When I need it, it works very well for me, and with no problematic side-effects.


Cheers,
Ian

Personally, i used to be on trazodone, between started at 50 was eventually prescribed 500, stuff is no good for me. Intuniv used to work well for me, i just had concerns about excessive dizziness during the day so i stopped it.Id reccomend trying intuniv or clonidine, they have a good profile for add and should not lead to weight gain
