What are the tests for mirtazapine overdose?

Professional eval: There are no tests, and an expert physician would not need tests. An "overdose" (other than deliberate) is a relative thing. Whomever is prescribing the Remeron (mirtazapine) needs to discuss your experience with the medication, including benefits and possible problems. Meds of this type always need close clinical monitoring, especially in the early stages and when doses, or circumstances, change.

Is 90mg of Mirtazapine Sandoz an overdose and can it kill you?

Is 90mg of Mirtazapine Sandoz an overdose and can it kill you?

Not necessarily: Doses as high as 120 mg of mirtazapine have been reported in the literature. More important, is the 90 mg dose prescribed or is this amount being taken to attempt self-harm? Not uncommon for some prescribers to push towards higher doses, while others stay lower. All may be reasonable if the patient benefits. A prescribed dose should be well-explained and justified. Call poison control if necessary

I am thinking of reducing my mirtazapine dosage but I'm worried about symptoms returning. How soon would symptoms return once the tablet is stopped?

I am thinking of reducing my mirtazapine dosage but I'm worried about symptoms returning. How soon would symptoms return once the tablet is stopped?

Several days: You may notice some rebound depression and anxiety symptoms after a few days of reducing the dose, but that should go away after a few days to a couple of weeks if you are feeling better and don't need to be on your current dose. If you do start to experience moderate to severe symptoms, go back to your usual dose. You should discuss a taper and plan with our pcp and/or your psychiatrist.

What sorts of medicine can I take to help with cold symptoms while taking Mirtazapine (remeron)Teca, safely?

Avoid some meds: Avoid use of cold medicine containing dextromethorphan. When this drug is combined with Mirtazapine it increases your risk of a rare but serious side effect called the serotonin syndrome. Sudafed, guaifenesin, and acetaminophen are ok. Get plenty if rest and drink plenty of non alcoholic liquids. Hope this helps! Get well soon!

Are there any withdrawal symptoms to be concerned about after 6 days on mirtazapine of 15mg 3 days then 30mg 3 days and then not taking at all?

Mirtazapine: It's very unlikely as you have only been on the medication for 6 days. If your are on Anti Anxiety medication that should be discontinue otherwise Remeron (mirtazapine) should be tapered off slowly.

What is the reccomended dose for taper off mirtazapine sandoz from 15 mg to 0mg? I'm in mirt for 6 months and I worry withdrawal symptom thanks

What is the reccomended dose for taper off mirtazapine sandoz from 15 mg to 0mg? I'm in mirt for 6 months and I worry withdrawal symptom thanks

Ask your doc!: Seriously! If you want to change your drug regimen whether stop or increase dose, it's best to chat w/prescribing doc. With that said, 15mg is smallest dose of Mirtazapine so unless you cut tablet in half, you can't get smaller dose, at least not in States. Check out http://www. Drugs. Com/mirtazapine. Html for more info.

I barely had any withdrawal symptoms from any med I ever took, however I've read/heard horror stories about Mirtazapine's wd symptoms. Should I worry?

No likely worry but: There is no likely worry about coming off mirtazapine. Preferable to do it with the collaboration of the physician who prescribed. You do not say what dose. I encourage not stopping suddenly, taper off reducing the dose every 10-14 days. If prescribed for depression watch for recurring signs which you had when it was started. Some people have difficulty stopping but not typical withdrawal.

I wanna change my remeron (mirtazapine) I've been taking it three years would it be hard to change like withdrawal symptoms? All I've done is gained weight

DC Remeron (mirtazapine): It is possible to change psychotropic medications. A psychiatrist can instruct you on how to go about changing your medication. They will methodically ween you off by having you take smaller amounts gradually over time. In many cases, the new medication can be introduced before the old one is totally out of your system.

How hard is it overdose on my medicine I'm on 1.5 mg of klonopin 80 mg of inderal (propranolol) and 45 mg of remeron at night that's it wife says its a lot?

Medication Question: It would be best for you to contact your prescribing physician. If meds are prescribed by different physicians contact one of them and ask about all three in combination. You would be well served to contact a psychologist to help you deal with your anxiousness. That may help to relieve some of your other symptoms too. According to the cdc 90% of all doctor visits in the us are caused by stress.
