Remeron can, in rare cases, show up in a drug test as an amphetamine or in strange cases as cannabis, although this is extremely unlikely and more probably a testing error.

Mirtazapine, also known as Remeron, is a strong anti-depressant drug and is used only in clinically necessary circumstances due to the increased risk of suicidal tendencies that comes with Remeron as a side effect. It is administered orally and is similar to paracetamol in that it is white/creamy and powdery. It comes in a film-coated capsule form though, not in a caplet due to its soluble nature.

An amphetamine is a psychostimulant, which aims to increase focus and decrease fatigue. In the US, amphetamines are listed as Schedule II drugs; drugs with a high potential for abuse and dependency and drugs that have severely restricted access. In the UK they are counted as Class B drugs. Possession comes with a five year prison sentence and an unlimited fine.

Remeron (Mirtazapine) is a tetracyclic antidepressant, so it shouldn't show up on a drug test. If it does, you should simply provide proof that you were prescribed the drugs and proof of them. In some cases a doctor's note may also be required, or the testing of the medication, but generally the testing is very accurate and should only find what truly is in your system.

To make sure you aren't falsely accused, you should inform the testers that you are on this medication, and any others, before the test so the results can be fairly adjusted to incorporate this knowledge.
