1 Additional Answer
It is not entirely clear how mirtazapine works, since no other medications work exactly like it. It is thought that the antidepressant effects of this drug are due to its actions on serotonin and nor epinephrine. The drug blocks several different kinds of receptors, including serotonin, nor epinephrine, histamine, alpha, and muscarinic receptors.
