Why do I need this medicine?
Mirtazapine helps you to cope with feelings of depression.

How do I take this medicine?
Take Mirtazapine exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Do not take Mirtazapine for a longer period of time than instructed by your doctor.

You may need to take Mirtazapine for some time before the full benefits can be felt. Continue taking it even when you feel better and do not stop taking it unless advised by your doctor to do so.

Mirtazapine must be taken as directed for it to work well. Do not stop taking it unless instructed by your doctor. Your condition may worsen if the medicine is stopped suddenly. If your doctor decides you no longer need Mirtazapine, he will usually reduce the dose slowly.

Mirtazapine is available as a conventional tablet or orally disintegrating tablet.

If you have been given the conventional tablet, swallow it whole. Do not chew or crush it.

If you have been given the orally disintegrating tablet, remove it from the foil only just before you take it. Peel off the foil starting from one of the corners. Do not push the tablet out from the foil as this may crush it. Place the tablet directly on your tongue. It will dissolve quickly. Swallow it once it has dissolved. Do not chew, cut or crush it. The orally disintegrating tablet can be taken with or without water. This tablet is easily broken. Handle it gently. Do not touch the tablet with wet hands. Once the tablet has been removed from the foil, it cannot be kept.

You may take Mirtazapine with or without food. Try to take it at the same time each day.

What should I do if I have forgotten to take this medicine?
DO NOT double a dose under any circumstances.

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember.

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and return to your normal dosing schedule.

If you often forget to take your medicine, let your doctor and pharmacist know.

When should I not use this medicine?
Do not take Mirtazapine if you are taking or have taken other mood medicines known as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) in the last 14 days. Some examples of MAOIs include isocarboxazid, phenelzine, moclobemide, selegiline and tranylcypromine. Alert your doctor immediately if you are taking or have taken any of these medicines or other MAOIs.

Mirtazapine is not meant for use in children and teenagers.
