Remeron is more effective for sleeping at the 7.5mg dose level and at higher doses, it is more effective for treating depression.
I remember when i first tried it 12 years ago my shrink had me cut the 15mg dose in half(7.5mg dose) and i slept for 14 hours and i experienced the worst hangover of my life. Unfortunately, i refused to take it any more because of that hangover feeling. I didn't know at the time that remeron is more effective for treating insomnia at lower doses and that the grogginess goes away.
Fastforward to 2/92 and i cold turkeyed off ambien and trazadone and i didn't sleep for 7 days and for the next 4 months i averaged about 3-4 hours of light sleep and i was sick all the time. I decided to try remeron again, this time i took 15mg and i was sleeping roughly 6 hours per night so i decided to cut it down to 7.5mg and i started to sleep on average 8 hours per night.
I was able to taper off it 6 months later and i began sleeping 7 hours per night with out any medication.
The grogginess does go away after a week.
