Product Info:

Mirtazapine is an anti-depressant often used to treat weight loss and anorexia (loss of appetite), mainly in cats. It also has antiemetic (anti-vomiting) and anti-nausea effects, and has been used to treat side effects of chemotherapy. Rarely, it may be used to treat behavioral problems.


Dogs and Cats

How it works:

It is used in cats and dogs to treat vomiting or decreased appetite is ‘off-label’.

Side Effects:

Mirtazapine may cause a drop in blood pressure or an elevation in heart rate. Drowsiness and serotonin syndrome are potential side effects. Occasionally, mirtazapine has been reported to cause abnormalities in blood cell lines developing in the bone marrow. If a pet is known to have leukemia, low platelets, or some other blood disease mirtazapine can still be used but extra monitoring tests are probably in order.


Mirtazapine should be used with caution in pets with known cardiac disease or cerebrovascular disease that could be exacerbated by hypotension. Pets with renal impairment, renal failure, or hepatic disease may require lower doses of mirtazapine and should be monitored while on mirtazapine therapy.
