Riva Mirtazapine 

Indication

Mirtazapine belongs to the group of medications known as tetracyclic antidepressants. Antidepressants are used to help relieve the symptoms of Depression such as feeling low, sleeping problems, loss of appetite, and loss of interest in activities that you would normally enjoy doing.

When you have depression, certain chemicals in the brain are out of their normal balance. Antidepressants such as mirtazapine work by helping to bring the chemicals back into balance. Antidepressants usually take at least a few weeks to achieve their beneficial effect, so it is important to have patience and take the medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

Riva Mirtazapine may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Riva Mirtazapine may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Riva Mirtazapine may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Riva Mirtazapine for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Riva Mirtazapine, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Riva Mirtazapine without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Riva Mirtazapine to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Riva Mirtazapine if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Riva Mirtazapine 

Dosage

The recommended starting dose of mirtazapine for adults is 15 mg taken once daily in the evening before going to bed. The doctor may increase the dose to 30 mg after 1 to 2 weeks, depending on circumstances. The maximum recommended dose of mirtazapine is 45 mg daily. Swallow the tablets whole with water. Do not chew the tablets.

If you are taking the orally disintegrating tablet form of mirtazapine, it is important to handle these tablets properly.

The orally-disintegrating tablets have been designed to rapidly dissolve on the tongue and can be swallowed with saliva. Ensure that your hands are dry when you remove the tablet from its blister packaging, and then immediately place the tablet on your tongue. Note that tablets must be used immediately after removal from packaging. The tablets cannot be stored once they are removed from their packaging.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications.

If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
