Mirtazapine is a drug used to treat depression and other mental disorders. It works by increasing the amount of serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain, which helps improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression.
To take mirtazapine, start with a dosage of 15-45 mg per day, divided into several doses. Gradually increase the dose until the optimal effect is achieved, usually after about 2-4 weeks. If you experience side effects such as dry mouth, constipation or insomnia, reduce the dose.
Before using mirtazapine, it is important to consult a doctor, especially if you have any diseases or medications you are taking. The doctor may also prescribe blood and urine tests to make sure that you do not have contraindications for taking mirtazapine.
Side effects of mirtazapine may include dry mouth, constipation, insomnia, headaches, and fatigue. If you notice any unusual symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.
If you overdose on mirtazapine, seek medical attention immediately. Overdose symptoms may include drowsiness, confusion, seizures, and coma.
If you miss a dose of mirtazapine, take it as soon as possible. However, if a lot of time has already passed, skip the missed dose and continue taking according to the scheme.
