They found that this combination was no more effective in improving depression than placebo and call on doctors to rethink its use.

The study, funded by the National Institute for Health Research, also found that patients taking mirtazapine in combination with another antidepressant had more adverse effects and were more likely to stop treatment than those who took an antidepressant and placebo.
