A case report involving mirtazapine ingestion (total of 360 mg) is discussed. Major toxic effects noted were drowsiness and sinus tachycardia with near complete resolvement within twenty-four hours. It appears that the course of mirtazapine over-dose is relatively benign compared to the tricyclic antidepressant agents and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
