Mertazapine

Were you looking for information about Mirtazapine? Mertazapine is a common misspelling of mirtazapine.
 
Mirtazapine (Remeron®) is commonly prescribed as a treatment for depression. This condition is caused when the levels of certain chemicals in the brain (serotonin and norepinephrine) become unbalanced. It is thought that this drug helps to release more norepinephrine and serotonin to help keep the levels more balanced.
 
Possible side effects include dry mouth, increased appetite, and drowsiness, among others. As with any medication, it is possible to overdose on mirtazapine. Seek immediate medical attention if you develop any overdose symptoms, such as disorientation, memory problems, or a rapid heart rate. Before taking this medicine, let your healthcare provider know if you are taking any other medications or have any other medical conditions.
