What is Mirtazapine Compounded?

Mirtazapine was created to treat depression in humans, but is most beneficial to stimulate appetite in pets suffering from a variety of illnesses. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Mirtazapine Compounded requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs & Cats

Benefits:
  • Anti-nausea properties
  • Increases appetite in pets
  • Can be used in pets suffering from nausea associated with cancer treatments
How it Works:

Mirtazapine has strong anti-nausea properties by acting on the neuroreceptors in the intestine and stomach that communicate with the vomit center of the brain. It also increases the appetite in pets suffering from stomach problems, renal failure and cancer.

Cautions:

Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. Safety of Mirtazapine is unproven in pregnancy and lactation.

How to Use
Directions:
  • Generally, Mirtazapine is given once a day to dogs, and twice a week to cats, however, dosages vary by weight and the veterinarians instructions so use accordingly.
  • It is used to treat conditions where poor appetite and nausea go together.
  • It is also used to alleviate the nausea associated with chemotherapy when treating cancer.
Tip:

The most common side effect of this medication is drowsiness.

Question on Dosage

Hi, I am currently giving Mirtazapine for my CRF cat Chubby. Although he is VERY DIFFICULT to pill. I saw your on your site that you can get this compounded or in a liquid. I do have a question though. I currently give chubby 7.5 mgs (a half tablet) every three days. I wasn't sure which mg to pick since you didn't have the 7.5 mg amount. Thanks so much for your help. Mike
Asked by: Mike
You can get a 7.5 mg dose of Mirtazapine from either the 5mg/ml or 10 mg/ml liquid; however, the 10mg/ml is more cost effective. Consulting your veterinarian is recommended.
