Avanza (Remeron) is known as a Tetracyclic antidepressant and classified as a Noradrenergic and Specific Serotonergic Antidepressant (NaSSA), meaning Avanza affects Norepinephrine and Serotonin. Avanza increases the
release of both Serotonin and to a lesser degree Norepinephrine (Noradrenaline). Norepinephrine increases blood pressure, affects parts of the brain where attention and action is controlled. Along with Epinephrine,
Norepinephrine creates the fight-or-flight response that increases heart rate and triggers the release of glucose while increasing blood flow to the skeletal muscle. Serotonin influences the cardiovascular, renal, immune
and gastrointestinal systems, and is essential to regulate body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure and the sympathetic nervous system. Avanza is also a potent antihistamine that contributes to its sedative qualities
but is also known to cause weight gain and sugar cravings.

Avanza history and info
Remeron (Avanza) was introduced in the United States by the Dutch firm Organon International in 1996. Organon's first product was insulin in the 1920s and in the 30s they manufactured estrogens. Scherring-Plough Corporation acquired Organon in 2007, and in 2009 they was merged with Merck Pharmaceuticals. In October 2014 the U.S. government charged the manufacturer of Remeron with making improper financial incentives (kickbacks) to nursing homes to encourage the use of their drug. They were also charged with misrepresentation of drug prices and ordered to pay restitution for breaking the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute.
There have been many reports of withdrawal symptoms upon the discontinuation of Avanza or with a too rapid titration. The FDA states, "Patients currently taking Remeron (Avanza) should NOT discontinue treatment abruptly, due to risk of discontinuation symptoms. At the time that a medical decision is made to discontinue treatment with Remeron, a gradual reduction in the dose, rather than an abrupt cessation, is recommended."
