Mirtazapine

Mirtazapine, sold under the brand name Remeron among others, is an antidepressant used to treat depression. Its full effect may take more than four weeks to occur, with some benefit as early as one to two weeks, it is used in depression complicated by anxiety or trouble sleeping. It is taken by mouth. Common side effects include increased weight and dizziness. Serious side effects may include mania, low white blood count, increased suicide among children. Withdrawal symptoms may occur with stopping, it is not recommended together with an MAO inhibitor. It is unclear. How it works is not clear. Chemically, it is a tetracyclic antidepressant, it has strong antihistamine effects. Mirtazapine came into medical use in the United States in 1996; the patent expired in 2004, generic versions are available. In the United States the wholesale cost as of 2018 is about US$3 per month. In the United Kingdom a month supply costs the NHS about £1.60 per month as of 2018. In 2016 it was the 128th most prescribed medication in the United States with about 5.5 million prescriptions.

Mirtazapine is used for major depressive disorder and other mood disorders. Onset of action appears similar to tricyclic antidepressants. There is some tentative evidence supporting its use in treating the following conditions, for which it is sometimes prescribed off-label: In 2010 NICE recommended generic SSRIs as first line choices, as they are "equally effective as other antidepressants and have a favourable risk–benefit ratio." With respect to mirtazapine, it found: "There is no difference between mirtazapine and other antidepressants on any efficacy measure, although in terms of achieving remission mirtazapine appears to have a statistical though not clinical advantage. In addition, mirtazapine has a statistical advantage over SSRIs in terms of reducing symptoms of depression, but the difference is not clinically important. However, there is strong evidence that patients taking mirtazapine are less to leave treatment early because of side effects, although this is not the case for patients reporting side effects or leaving treatment early for any reason."A 2011 Cochrane review that compared mirtazapine to other antidepressants found that, while it appears to have a faster onset in people for whom it works, its efficacy is about the same as other antidepressants after 6 weeks' use.

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 at higher doses, causing restless leg syndrome in 8 to 28% of people and in rare cases causes REM sleep behavior disorder. A 2018 analysis of 21 antidepressants found them to be similar overall, it found tentative evidence for mirtazapine being in the more effective group and middle in tolerability. After one week of usage, mirtazapine was found to have an earlier onset of action compared to SSRIs. A 2011 Cochrane review found that compared with other antidepressants, it is more to cause weight gain and sleepiness, but it is less to cause tremor than tricyclic antidepressants, less to cause nausea and sexual dysfunction than SSRIs. Common adverse effects include constipation, dry mouth, increased appetite and weight gain. Common adverse effects include weakness, dizziness, peripheral edema, negative lab results like elevated transaminases, elevated serum triglycerides, elevated total cholesterol.

Mirtazapine is not considered to have a risk of many of the side effects associated with other antidepressants like the SSRIs, may improve certain ones when taken in conjunction with them. In general, some antidepressants SSRIs, can paradoxically exacerbate some peoples' depression or anxiety or cause suicidal ideation. Despite its sedating action, mirtazapine is believed to be capable of this, so in the United States and certain other countries, it carries a black box label warning of these potential effects for people under the age of 25. A case report published in 2000 noted an instance in which mirtazapine counteracted the action of clonidine, causing a dangerous rise in blood pressure. Mirtazapine and other antidepressants may cause a discontinuation syndrome upon cessation. A gradual and slow reduction in dose is recommended to minimize discontinuation symptoms. Effects of sudden cessation of treatment with mirtazapine may include depression, tinnitus, panic attacks, restlessness, decreased appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, flu-like symptoms such as allergies and pruritus and sometimes hypomania or mania.

Mirtazapine is considered to be safe in the event of an overdose, although it is considered more toxic in overdose than most of the SSRIs. Unlike the tricyclic antidepressants, mirtazapine showed no significant cardiovascular adverse effects at 7 to 22 times the maximum recommended dose. Case reports of overdose with as much as 30 to 50 times the standard dose described the drug as nontoxic, compared to tricyclic antidepressants. Twelve reported; the fatal toxicity index (deaths per million p

100 Years Ago

"100 Years Ago" is a song by the Rolling Stones featured on their 1973 album Goats Head Soup. Credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, guitarist Mick Taylor said at the time of its release, "Some of the songs we used were pretty old.'100 Years Ago' was one that Mick had written two years ago and which we hadn't got around to using before." The song is described by Tom Maginnis in his review as having a, "wistful air with a country lilt... before making several tempo shifts into a funky, sped-up groove..." The song's lyrics see Jagger reflect on aging: Now all my friends is wearing worried smiles, Living out a dream of what they was. Went out walkin' through the wood the other day. What tender days, we had no secrets hid away. Recording took place at Kingston's Dynamic Sound Studios in November and December, 1972, with a final mix conducted in June 1973. Jagger performs lead vocals and is accompanied by Taylor on backing. Taylor performs the song's guitars while Keith Richards and Charlie Watts perform bass and drums, respectively.
