Hello doctor,

I am an anxiety patient with 170 pounds weight and 5 feet 5 inches height. I am using the Mirtazapine tablet for a year. I have withdrawn it some times but faced some panic attacks. Please suggest to me how long I can continue this?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Mirtazapine is an effective antidepressant medicine used to treat depression and anxiety disorders. What dose are you taking? It can usually be from 15 mg to 45 mg depending on response and tolerability. You need to take it daily for at least six months to a year, possibly longer. You will need to have regular reviews while taking the medications. Also, try to get some counseling and talking therapy as well, to manage the anxiety. Thank you.
