Bolvidon - General Information:

A tetracyclic compound with antidepressant effects. Bolvidon was previously available internationally, however in most markets it has been phased out in favor of Mirtazapine.


Bolvidon is a tetracyclic antidepressant that has antihistaminic and hypnosedative, but almost no anticholinergic, effect. It is a weak inhibitor of norepinephrine reuptake and strongly stimulates the release of norepinephrine. Interactions with serotonin receptors in the central nervous system have also been found. Its effect is usually noticeable after one to three weeks. Bolvidon may cause drowsiness and hematological problems.
