I take this to help me sleep. I used to be a restless sleeper, waking often during the night. I had nightmares. I also suffered headaches from tension and lack of sleep. I felt wired. Anything would wake me because my mind was always working overtime and was filled with worries. Now when I sleep, my mind is able to relax so I get a good night's sleep. My husband and my mother noticed the change right away. My husband can tell when I miss a night because I toss and turn and have weird dreams. Now I do my worrying during the day. I no longer have headaches. My doctor started me with Paxil which helped but not at night. She started the remeron about a month later. That's when the headaches stopped.
