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 ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
