Improvement should be noticed within 1 to 4 weeks of taking Mirtaz. Continue to take Mirtaz even if you feel well. Do not miss any dose. If you miss a dose of Mirtaz, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once. Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Mirtaz.
