Mirtazapine is an drug which is used to treat depression and post tramatic stress in people all over the world. It's sold under brand names such as Avanza, Axit, Mirtaz, Mirtazon, Remeron, Zispin. Although the most popular brand of Mirtazapine is Remeron. There is also a generic version of Mirtazapine avialable for sale.
A recent warning has been issued in Canada and the UK alerting medical professionals of a link between Mirtazapine (Remeron) and a risk of Abnormal Heart Rhythm. These Abnormal Heart Rhythms can cause illness, torsades de pointes, and possibly death. In an email dated March 28th Health Canada said
Merck Canada Inc., in consultation with Health Canada, would like to inform you of important safety information about REMERON / REMERON RD (mirtazapine) and abnormal heart rhythm.
They also state that users who take Remeron may feel dizzy, faint or suffer from seizures. These patients while suffering these symptoms may face death if they are not immediately treated. In Canada, they have updated the Remeron product information to include warnings of these very dangerous Remeron side effects. This stems from a study where approx 17 thousand Mirtazapine users where tracked and nearly 200 of them developed Abnormal Heart Rhythm. The Abnormal Heart Rhythm victims were almost split 50/50 based on gender.
In the US, the FDA has made no announcement as of yet regarding any warning for Mirtazapine linking to Abnormal Heart Rhythm. Nor has the FDA issued any information on a possible Mirtazapine Remeron FDA Recall. It's not uncommon for the FDA to act on news and issue presented by other countries health agencies and vice versa. If there is a proven link between Remeron and abnormal heart rhythm there could be causation for a Remeron lawsuit for failure to warn. If you are taking Remeron or Mirtazapine and feel any dizziness or faint, immediately contact your doctor. If you or a loved one have taken Mirtazapine and experienced an Abnormal Heart Rhythm, you may entitled to compensation.
