I can't see how this drug will catch on with such a high cost and narrow indication.

By the name of the drug, I am guessing it is related to ritanserin and mianserin (and hence mirtazapine?). If it only acts on the 5-ht2a receptors, it may not have as much theraputic applicaiton as other antipsychotics. Perhaps it may work in milder cases of schizophrenia (or prodromal) with fewer adverse effects.

I've often felt that mirtazapine acts like an antipsychotic / mood stabilizer.
