Chemical Name : Mirtazapine
Remeron Information : Antidepressant medication Remeron (Mirtazapine) is a tetracyclic antidepressant used to treat depression. Remeron (Mirtazapine) may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. Remeron (Mirtazapine), introduced by Organon in 1994, is a noradrenergic and selective serotonergic antidepressant (NaSSA), the first of a new class of therapy. Its active compound, mirtazapine, has a dual-action effect aimed at rectifying the chemical imbalances in the brain that are understood to cause depression.
A deficiency in the brain of two chemicals - norepinephrine and serotonin - is believed to contribute to depressed mood, poor sleep, anxiety, weight loss, and other symptoms of depression. Remeron (Mirtazapine)is understood to act by increasing the release of both these chemicals from nerve cells in the brain, thereby relieving symptoms.
In addition, Remeron (Mirtazapine) blocks two specific serotonergic receptor sites so that they do not become stimulated. Some other types of antidepressant stimulate these sites, which may account for their serotonergic side effects such as insomnia, nervousness, nausea and loss of sexual drive.
Remeron (Mirtazapine) appears to be highly effective and well tolerated by patients. Remeron (Mirtazapine) is available in 15 mg, 30 mg and 45 mg tablets, taken once daily, and as Remeron SolTab.
Remeron Side Effects : Remeron side effects, that may go away during Remeron antidepressant medication treatment, include drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, dry mouth, increased appetite, weight gain, or constipation. If Remeron side effects continue or are bothersome, check with your doctor. If you notice other Remeron side effects not listed above, contact your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
