Mirtazapine 3 3
Saved my cat's life! My cat was at stage 4 Kidney disease.when the U of Minnesota pet hospital recommended this for his lack of appetite. He had lost a # and gained it right back after using this about twice a week. About every three to four days he starts to lose his appetite. I then give him (for his 9 # weight) 1/8 to 1/4 of a pill. That keeps him from getting too much. I just chip off a piece and hold his head back until he swallows it.He does get anxious and eyes dilated after 10 minutes but he is suddenly starved and eats happily for 3 to 4 days and is very affectionate. Don't be scared of the temporary howling...use small chip dose. 11/11/2014
My cat has lower intestional cancer and i was given this in a liquid form.. My cat hates the taste of this medicine, even though they made it chicken flavored he still does not like it at all and he makes himself drool excessively. Since taken this with his chemotherapy medicine he has started gaining weight. He actually eats like crazy after the medicine has kicked in and also no longer throws up. The one thing I do not like is that he gets a little anxious and his eyes become very dialated for at least 10 minutes, then he is back to himself. I love this product but feel bad having to give him any medicine at all but it has helped him 90%. 05/14/2014
Pretty good but a few side effects Seems to suppress nausea and it is helping my cat to eat more. But I wonder how good it is for her as it makes her hyper for at least the first 12 hours after giving it to her. And she meows a lot and seems restless. She has had 3 doses over the past week and a half...I may lengthen the time between doses...TBC 04/01/2014

Answer:Meowing and crying are known side effects of cats taking this drug. Your kitty is most likely
comfortable in spite of the crying. Has the medication had the desired effect of increasing her
male chihauhau. weighs 20 lbs. Consistent itching above tail... lower back. Currently on steroids (Prednazone) . Its making him gain weight. Could Mirtazapine
ine be a safer alternative. If so how many milligrams how many times a day? Thank you
Answer:I think a proper vet/pharmacist already answered this, but mirtazapine does not do what steroids/prednisone do.
You should have the vet evaluate whether the weight gain is simply fat or lean body mass versus water retention, which creates a greater workload for the heart.
If you're having a problem, ask your vet about a topical steroid - even if one would need to be compounded. This would greatly minimize size effects while directly delivering the drug.
