Mirtazapine is a tetracyclic antidepressant, used for mainly treating major depressive disorder, as well as occasionally treating obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders. Patients taking this medication report improvements in sleep, problem solving, and personal interactions because their anxiety is reduced. Its mechanism of action is yet to be understood, although it is thought to have to do with serotonin, a molecule that aids brain cells in sending messages.


Mirtazapine is available in tablet form. Usual dose is 15 to 45mg per day.
