Remeron Withdrawal and Tapering Help
Remeron (Mirtazapine) was introduced in the United States by the Dutch firm Organon International in 1996. Organon's first product was insulin in the 1920s and in the 30s they manufactured estrogens. Scherring-Plough Corporation acquired Organon in 2007, and in 2009 they was merged with Merck Pharmaceuticals. In October 2014 the U.S. government charged the manufacturer of Remeron with making improper financial incentives (kickbacks) to nursing homes to encourage the use of their drug. They were also charged with misrepresentation of drug prices and ordered to pay restitution for breaking the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute.
Remeron is known as a Tetracyclic antidepressant and classified as a Noradrenergic and Specific Serotonergic Antidepressant (NaSSA), meaning Remeron affects Norepinephrine and Serotonin.
Remeron increases the release of both Serotonin and to a lesser degree Norepinephrine (Noradrenaline). Norepinephrine increases blood pressure, affects parts of the brain where attention and action is controlled. Along with Epinephrine, Norepinephrine creates the fight-or-flight response that increases heart rate and triggers the release of glucose while increasing blood flow to the skeletal muscle. Serotonin influences the cardiovascular, renal, immune and gastrointestinal systems, and is essential to regulate body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure and the sympathetic nervous system. Remeron is also a potent antihistamine that contributes to its sedative qualities but is also known to cause weight gain and sugar cravings.
In 2014 Health Canada required Merck Pharmaceutical to include important safety information on Remeron stating that "Post marketing cases of QT prolongation and torsades de pointes reported with the use of mirtazapine." QT prolongation is a heart rhythm disorder that can cause serious irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Patients with torsades de pointes may present with dizziness, palpitations, syncope, or seizures. If this condition is left, torsades de pointes can progress to ventricular fibrillation and sudden cardiac death.
There have been many reports of withdrawal symptoms upon the discontinuation of Remeron or with a too rapid titration. The FDA states, "Patients currently taking Remeron should NOT discontinue treatment abruptly, due to risk of discontinuation symptoms. At the time that a medical decision is made to discontinue treatment with Remeron, a gradual reduction in the dose, rather than an abrupt cessation, is recommended."
Many patients find that even with a gradual reduction Remeron withdrawal symptoms are too challenging and interfere with daily life. Our nonprofit was founded to help the public safely taper Remeron and we use slow taper schedules combined with calming, all-natural nutraceuticals to ease Remeron Withdrawal.
