Descriptions

LP19150-9   Mirtazapine
Mirtazapine (Remeron, Avanza, Zispin, Reflex) is a tetracyclic antidepressant (TeCA) used primarily in the treatment of depression. Mirtazapine is also sometimes used as an anxiolytic, hypnotic, antiemetic, appetite stimulant, and antihistamine, among other indications. Along with its close analogues mianserin and setiptiline, mirtazapine is one of the few noradrenergic and specific serotonergic antidepressants (NaSSAs). Mirtazapine and its N-demethyl metabolite, normirtazapine, can be detected in specimens by various methods, including high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).

LP19150-9   Mirtazapine
Mirtazapine is metabolized by N-demethylation to normirtazapine, which is thought to account for 5-10% of total activity of the parent compound. Normirtazapine accumulates with chronic treatment. Measurement of Mirtazapine and Normirtazapine in plasma, hair and other specimens are useful for assessing compliance and in diagnosis of acute poisoning. Source: Regenstrief LOINC, PMID: 14643499
