What is Mirnite Meltab (Mirtazapine) used for?
Mirnite Meltab (Mirtazapine) is an oral antidepressant prescribed to treat patients suffering from depression. It operates by balancing levels of neurotransmitters in the brain to elevate mood and lift patients out of major depression. This can prevent symptoms associated with this condition including feelings of worthlessness, guilt, loss of interest in formerly entertaining activities, or anxiety. Your physician may prescribe this medicine to be taken along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use Mirnite Meltab (Mirtazapine)?
Mirnite Meltab (Mirtazapine) is normally prescribed to be administered once each day, but your physician will determine the correct dosage based on your age, weight, current health, and the severity of your symptoms. The tablets are dissolving and each dose should be taken by placing them in the mouth and waiting for it to disintegrate and swallowing. You are recommended to drink a small cup of water after each use to ensure the full dose is consumed. When removing the tablets, do not push them through the foil, but rather peel the foil back to avoid crushing them. Do not split or crush the tablets before use to make sure the entire dose is taken.
