Mirtazapine does just exactly what it's supposed to... my kitty Evette now eats regularly rather than pick at every bite, and has greatly decreased her vomiting episodes. Exactly what we needed to hopefully get some weight back on her tiny body.

Was given as a appetite support for my cat and she got serotonin syndrome from it. Dangerous drug for pets.

Works very well.From Thousand Oaks, CAComments about Mirtazapine (Generic)Stimulates appetite. My mom uses it for her dog with cancer. He won't eat anything without this medication. It keeps him going. #sweepstakes
It worksFrom UndisclosedComments about Mirtazapine (Generic)My mom's dog has cancer and he'll only eat after he's taken this. Definitely works.
Helpful and CaringFrom undisclosedComments about Mirtazapine (Generic)I was perscribed this for my 18 year old fur baby because he wasn't eating and this is helping him get his appetite back so that he's gained some of his weight back that he lost. My only issue that I have is that this manufacturers pill is oblong in shape and somewhat difficult to split into quarters (1/4) - but since it's doing what I had hoped for, I'm happy that he's a least eating again.

A good company to do business withFrom undisclosedComments about Mirtazapine (Generic)Prescribed by my veterinarian. This company responded promptly to my inquiry and filled and shipped the order promptly despite the fact that it was such a small order that the only thing they earned was my respect and goodwill.
Good productFrom undisclosedComments about Mirtazapine (Generic)Seems to help my ailing kitty want to eat more!
This medication is magical!From undisclosedComments about Mirtazapine (Generic)A quarter of a pill and my 19 year old cat with a poor appetite is begging for food 20 minutes later. It can be annoying with the periodic yowling and begging for food especially for the first half day, but I'll take the annoyingness if that means her nutrition is improved and minimizes weight loss. As a side effect, it seems my cats mood is improved - I thought it was fine to begin with, but she now spends more time napping in common areas and in the screened porch rather than the bedroom all the time. The pill is given every 3 days (bonus! because pilling cats sucks) but sometimes for a few extra days the pill is still working. I spent a bunch of money on tests and the vet couldn't determine what was causing the poor appetite. So glad this med exists! One major downside is the pill is already small so quartering it is difficult and uneven sections happen or the tiny piece might crumble or split. My vet was charging $30 for one tablet, so at this cheap price it doesn't matter if one portion bites the dust. A pill splitter helps. The quarter pill takes skill to administer in a pill gun without losing it. Easy for cat to swallow but also easy to pocket. If my cat is not yowling 20 minutes later then there is a high liklihood it was lost.

Q & A
I am looking at either the 7.5 mg tab or the 15 mg tab. Are these oblong or round tablets? Is there a picture of the pill so that I can compare it to what my cat is currently taking? Also, I am wondering why the price is so much higher for the lower dose. Is it the exact same medication? or a different formula??
The active ingredients in each of the pills are the same (just different doses). Usually the result of the smaller drug dose being higher priced than larger dose is because of drug shortages and differences in supply and demand. VetRxDirect cannot guarantee which manufacturer of the generic mirtazapine will be in stock when an order is placed. Availability and pricing are subject to change with generic manufacturers.Verified Answer
The page says that the product is 0.18. Is that 0.18c per tablet, or for the bottle of 30? Thanks in advance!?
That medication is sold at a per tablet price. Thank you, VetRxDirectCommunity Answer
My vet prescribed one-half of a 7.5 mg tablet for my cat. Your tabs are 15 mg in size. Can I easily break one of these into quarters (4 pieces), or are they of a size where it's not feasible? Also, what exactly is the size of them anyway? Thanks!?
Depending on the manufacturer, the tablets are either round or oblong. They are scored in half but splitting any further could be difficult. The size of the round tablet is about the size of the end of a push pin and the oblong ones are a little bigger. Thank you, VetRxDirectCommunity Answer
Are there any studies available that show contraindication of long term (every 3 days) use of a low dose to assist a cat with appetite stimulation? This cat has chronic renal failure(stage 2), IBD, hypertension.?
Deborah, Based on the medical information provided, mirtazapine could be used to help stimulate your pet's appetite. It is recommended for pets with kidney impairment that the veterinarian is monitoring your cat while on mirtazapine therapy. Studies are limited regarding the use of mirtazapine for animal use so your veterinarian will be best suited for monitoring your pet's drug therapy. Thank you, VetRxDirectCommunity Answer
