As this blogger points out, two scales which are commonly used in depression research/drug trials count reduced appetite and sleeplessness as symptoms of depression, so mirtazapine by fixing these symptoms directly may give a falsely higher score of improvement.
So if today I decide to stop eating and sleeping and some other banalities, a week from now I'll be classified as a major depressive if I then took such a questionnaire Great job there Hamilton!

I'm starting to see why everyone is depressed
