Remeron less sedating at higher doses 100 online dating one to one site

A 2012 review focused on antidepressants and sleep found that in many people with sleep disorders caused by depression, mirtazapine reduces the time it takes to fall asleep and increases the quality of sleep, but that in some people it can disturb sleep, especially at higher doses, causing restless leg syndrome in 8 to 28% of people and in rare cases causes REM sleep behavior disorder.

A 2011 Cochrane review found that compared with other antidepressants, it is more likely to cause weight gain and sleepiness, but it is less likely to cause tremor than tricyclic antidepressants, and less likely to cause nausea and sexual dysfunction than SSRIs.

Suddenly stopping mirtazapine may cause severe depression, insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, (all dysphoric states) loss of appetite, worsening of allergies and rarely, manic episodes.

It is especially useful for treating combined poor appetite and nausea in cats and dogs.

MIRTAZAPINE (brand name Remeron) is a tetra-cyclic antidepressant.

Effects of sudden cessation of treatment with mirtazapine may include depression, anxiety, tinnitus, panic attacks, vertigo, restlessness, irritability, decreased appetite, insomnia, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, flu-like symptoms such as allergies and pruritus, headaches and sometimes hypomania or mania.

Concurrent use with inhibitors or inducers of the cytochrome (CYP) P450 isoenzymes CYP1A2, CYP2D6, and/or CYP3A4 can result in altered concentrations of mirtazapine, as these are the main enzymes responsible for its metabolism.

Though it is usually prescribed for major depression, there are many off-label uses, most notably to improve sleep-architecture in those with severe and/or chronic insomnia.
