Metabolite Identification
Common NameN-desmethylmirtazapine
DescriptionN-desmethylmirtazapine is a metabolite of mirtazapine. Mirtazapine (Remeron, Avanza, Zispin) is a noradrenergic and specific serotonergic antidepressant (NaSSA) which was introduced by Organon International in the United States in 1990 and is used primarily in the treatment of depression.
