Exclamation NOVO-MIRTAZAPINE cause hep ?

I just started dating a guy who is on mirtazapine for depression. I was curious about the drug so I did some research. I read that it may.. in very rare cases.. but it may cause hepititus (sp?). This worries me... seeing how that can be sexually transmitted.. depending on the type I believe.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Re: NOVO-MIRTAZAPINE cause hep ?

Hi almac.

People in general with depression/psychiatric illnesses have an increased risk of hep. C...which is not sexually contacted. I'm not sure why, but it has something to do with the liver, and the enzymes it produces. I'm no doctor by any means...and this is just from what I've read. If your worried about it, I'd contact your doctor. Good luck,
