Depression is a complex condition caused by myriad factors - ranging from chemical imbalances in the brain to traumatic events in peoples’ lives. Like most antidepressants, it takes some time after beginning mirtazapine for you to feel better. According to Britain’s National Health Service, it may take 4 to 6 weeks before you start feeling better.

As you begin mirtazapine, your doctor will likely prescribe you a once-daily, 15 mg dose to be taken right before you go to bed.

All dosing increases should be administered in intervals greater than 2 weeks to allow sufficient time to assess your response.
