Our expert says:
I don't know that Remeron is especially likely to make one crave carbs and put on weight. Pretty well all ADs CAN do this, none do it in everyone who takes them. As you haven't yet taken it ( and yes, of course you need to discuss this with me ) you have presumably read or heard somewhere that this is an inevitable side-effect, which is not so.
And diet and exercise still work.
If possible, it's usually worth trying to change one thing at a time, because, as you say, this makes it much easier to work out which intervention had which desirable or undesirable effect.
And discuss with your p-oc your interest in clearing the board before possible starting again. Sometimes this is worth doing ( not always ) and if so it can be worth planning to do it on a planned progam of withdrawing the meds rather than stopping cold turkey, and with a possible hospital admission to provide extra support as you emerge.
