What are the side effects of Mirtazapine Tablet?
The most common side effect of this medication is drowsiness. Mirtazapine decreases cortisol secretion by the adrenal glands, but has not actually panned out as a treatment for Cushing’s Syndrome, where excess adrenal steroids are produced by the adrenal glands. Serotonin syndrome is a potential side effect should brain levels of serotonin get too high but this syndrome generally requires a combination of serotonin-increasing medications. Elevated heart rate, tremors/shivering, dilated pupils, difficulty breathing, elevated body temperature, or high blood pressure can all be signs of serotonin syndrome. Animals with serotonin syndrome sometimes demonstrate general hyperactivity. If there is any question that serotonin syndrome is occurring, cyproheptadine can be used as an antidote. At higher doses, mirtazapine may cause a drop in blood pressure or an elevation in heart rate. Occasionally, mirtazapine has been reported to cause abnormalities in blood cell lines developing in the bone marrow. If a patient is known to have leukemia, low platelets, or some other blood disease mirtazapine can still be used but extra monitoring tests are probably in order.
