Hello, suna,

I apologize that this response is so late. You likely have found your answers by now, but I'll provide information anyway. I hope it will be useful to you and/or to others who may read the post.

Mirtazapine is not known to cause any genetic disturbance in the person taking the medication. If the person becomes pregnant, the doctor should be notified immediately; the doctor also needs to know if the person is breastfeeding. It is extremely important to avoid alcohol while taking this medication, and it should always be taken exactly as it is prescribed. Do not take other drugs without your doctor's knowledge and advice. If the medication makes you sleepy, don't drive or do hazardous activity. Also report infections or illnesses to your doctor while you are taking the medication.

I hope this is helpful! Good luck to all.
