Additional recommended knowledge
The name tetracyclic is derived from the drug's molecular structure which consists of four ring-like structures in a T-shape (compare tricyclic antidepressant).
Maprotiline, trade named Ludiomil®, and Mirtazapine, trade named Remeron® in the USA, Zispin® in Europe and Avanza® in Australia, are the only two drugs from this group widely used for the treatment of clinical depression. The tetracyclic antidepressant Mianserin was previously available internationally, however in most markets it has been phased out in favor of Mirtazapine.
