Description
Curator's Comment:: description was created based on several sources, including https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15771415 | http://www.medicines.org.au/files/mkptolvo.pdf

Mianserin is a tetracyclic antidepressant used for the treatment of depression. It was investigated as an adjuvant for reduction of negative and cognitive symptoms of schizophrenia, as an aid for opioid detoxification therapy (where it reduced symptoms but lead to higher drop-out rate), and for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (where it was ineffective). Mianserin has a broad spectrum of activity with the most potent binding to 5-HT2A, 5-HT2C, H1, alpha2A and alpha2C receptor.

Sample Use Guides

The initial dosage of Tolvon should be judged individually. It is recommended that treatment begins with a daily dose of 30mg given in three divided doses or a single bedtime dose and be adjusted weekly in the light of the clinical response. The effective daily dose for adult patients usually lies between 30mg and 90mg (average 60mg) in divided doses or as a single bedtime dose. A maximum daily dose of 120mg should not be exceeded.
Route of Administration: Oral
Binding of mianserin to 5-HT2A receptor was measured using radioligand binding assay, using [125I]R91150 as a radioligand, and cloned human receptors. pKi for displacement of R91150 was 4.3 nM.
