Cardiovascular tolerance of mianserin and interactions of mianserin with other drugs



Cardiovascular tolerance of mianserin and interactions of mianserin with other drugs



Acta Psychiatrica Belgica 78(5): 787-797



The presented data clearly show that mianserin, which is therapeutically equal to other antidepressants, is a drug with a new chemical structure, with a most probably different mechanism of action and with distinct advantages above comparative drugs. Mianserin has not only pronouncedly fewer anticholinergic and central side-effects but: a) apparently has no cardiotoxic effects neither on healthy subjects nor on depressive individuals nor on cardiac patients; b) doses not cause orthostatic hypotension; c) is devoid of adverse drug-drug interactions with coumarin-like anticoagulants, with sympathomimetic amines, with antihypertensive agents and shows but little and short lasting interactions with alcohol.
