Description

Mirtazapine is a prescription uncoated tablet generally used as an appetite stimulant and anti-nausea drug in sufferers of chronic kidney disease or stomach disease. It increases appetite by blocking signals from the intestine and stomach to the brain. Veterinarians may use this for the treatment of companion animals. Customers may receive this drug under the name Remeron.

Uses

Mirtazapine Tablets are used to help treat conditions where poor appetite and nausea occur simultaneously.

Possible Side Effects

Mirtazapine may cause a drop in blood pressure or an elevation in heart rate. Drowsiness and serotonin syndrome are potential side effects. Occasionally, mirtazapine has been reported to cause abnormalities in blood cell lines developing in the bone marrow. If a pet is known to have leukemia, low platelets, or some other blood disease mirtazapine can still be used but extra monitoring tests are probably in order.

Drug & Food Interactions

Mirtazapine should not be used in pets with hypersensitivity to mirtazapine or that have received monoamine oxidase inhibitors (eg, selegiline) in the past 14 days.

Precautions

Mirtazapine should be used with caution in pets with known cardiac disease or cerebrovascular disease that could be exacerbated by hypotension. Pets with renal impairment, renal failure, or hepatic disease may require lower doses of mirtazapine and should be monitored while on mirtazapine therapy.

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.

    Works great...watch out for howling

    By brocomom on Dec 18, 2020

    My old cat has kidney disease and hardly any interest in food. This pill works wonders and makes a huge difference in his appetite. One of the side effects is increased vocalization - which is definitely present a couple hours after my cat takes the pills. It causes VERY loud meowing, he appears a little confused and his ears become quite red (my vet says these are normal). But he eats like a champ! I woke up to an empty food bowl for the first time in his life!

    So my cat has hepatic lipidosis. And she won’t eat or drink. We have to syringe feed, give her IV fluids subcutaneously, etc. And she can’t take pills for whatever reason, they’ll get stuck in the back of her throat for like up to a day, she’ll vomit, spit them out, or drool them. We’ve tried compounded too. I wanted to get this in transdermal form, but I can’t afford it because I’m spending over $150 monthly just to keep her alive and you’re supposed get like 3.75 mg and give it 3 or every other days to, and it’s like a battle with her just to eat.

We just crush one whole pill in her A/D and she like literally spits and drools half of her food out, so we don’t know how much of the pill she is getting, but it’s working. We’ve tried it with water or a pill popper, and she’ll like just vomit/spit/drool the whole thing out. She doesn’t want it in a greenie or pill paste. So if anybody is reading this and is having the same issue with their cat, we’re currently 6 1/2 weeks in and our cat is still alive. … more

    Helped my cat a lot

    By ruthiecrue on Oct 7, 2018 top25Contributor

    Took my cat to the vet because she was vomiting and had diarrhea and wasn't eating much. Vet prescribed antibiotics and this. She got her appetite back quickly.
