Answer
Dear Friend,
I would have happily sent you a birthday card, but surprisingly after such a long friendship we dont have each other's email. I wish you a very happy birthday and hope you have a blast.
Remeron does not cause respiratory depression, and the only rare side effect reported on respiration is dyspnoea. Now this sort of dyspnoea is something that can occur with anything. Actually when I was on my holiday, we had  Teacher's Scotch and that gave me dyspnoea. Subsequently I stuck to Indian Whiskey and was fine. So I dont give much importance to that isolated report of dyspnoea. If remeron and temazepam is helping you, I would say do not change, but if you have any serious problem then we can always change.
Have a blast on your birthday.
