Question
is remeron well tolerated in elderly.read remeron has less side effects then sleeping pillsread ambien is notorious for upper resporitory infections

Answer
Appropriate studies have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of mirtazapine in the elderly. However, older patients are more likely to have confusion or drowsiness and age-related kidney problems, which may require caution and an adjustment in the dose.
