This is just a random link I got off of hotbot:

The relevant text...

Mirtazapine (Remeron/Akzo
Nobel, Organon) is a long-acting tetracyclic compound unrelated to the tricyclic antidepressants. It is a potent antagonist of central pre- and post-synaptic alpha2-adrenergic
receptors and also serotonin (5-HT2 and 5-HT3) and histamine (H1) receptors, and has a moderate effect on peripheral alpha1 adrenergic receptors. Antagonizing histamine
receptors explains its prominent sedative effect, and antagonizing peripheral adrenergic receptors explains its tendency to cause orthostatic hypotension.

I DID however, make a mistake above. Mirtazapine is not an alpha agonist, but an alpha antagonist. I keep getting that one mixed up for
some reason.
