Mirtazapine

Mirtazapine is an atypical anti-depressant medication. It is prescribed for the treatment of conditions like:

  • Major depressive disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

It is sometimes used off-label for patients who experience a prolonged period of poor sleep. Studies have also shown that it has a positive impact on insomnia among people with depression. It helps improve the amount of time spent on sleep as it decreases the nighttime awakenings.

The exact mechanism of action of this drug is unknown. However, it is believed that it helps elevate the mood of a patient suffering from depression. Patients with depression have abnormal levels of these chemical messengers. Mirtazapine acts on the chemical messenger in the brain. It raises the level of serotonin and norepinephrine.
