What should I avoid while taking Remeron?

While taking the antidepressant Remeron (mirtazapine), you should avoid any medicines that can dangerously interact with it, including monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), triptans (used to treat migraines), St. John's wort, tryptophan, Tramadol, linezolid and other medicines to treat mental illness.

You should also avoid drinking alcohol or taking the medicine diazepam (Valium) while you're taking Remeron, since these can increase the likelihood of problems with motor skills and judgment, two possible side effects of Remeron.

Because Remeron can cause sleepiness, it's a good idea to avoid driving or operating other machines until you are sure how the drug affects you.
