How Does Mirtazapine Work?

Answer

Mirtazapine is an anti depressant that works by producing more norepinephrine and serotonin in the brain. This it does by limiting the effects of particular reuptake inhibitors. The drug is normally taken orally after which it disintegrates in the body to treat the patient.
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.
