Hi Samantha,

 

I successfully tapered off Remeron 15mg three years ago. What i did was an olive oil base with pulverized remeron tablets.  The person I got info on for the recipe was Roy Katz who is a compound pharmacist.  I could not get a dr to agree with me to write the prescription for liquid so I made the liquid myself and decreased 1mg at  a time over several weeks. I think it took me a good 6 months to get off totally. But you should contact Roy and get the recipe for the liquid titration method. He is more than willing to talk with you about concocting your own. Google Roy Katz and give him a call to get the right amount of Remeron per mg of Olive oil. it is a liquid suspension and you can get an even amount of Remeron using a syringe. Hope this helps and Good luck with your taper. I do not suggest cutting them in half  or even cutting them at all. I got a pestle and bowl and pulverized them and then put them in the olive oil , then measured out the right mg with a syringe and took it that way. Do not try to get off this fast. Its a slow drawn out taper designed to give you as little side effects as possible..

People do just fine making a suspension with Remeron and water -- see the first post in this topic.

Hello Everyone! I'm preparing myself for tapering off mirtazapine very soon. I have GEMINI-20 scale to weight my tablets, but I would rather prefer to use liquid mirtazapine and measure my doses with a syringe. I probably won't be able to get liquid mirtazapine from a pharmacy, so I have to make my own suspension. However, I'm little confused about that process. I have only orally disintegrating tablets. I want to make 15 ml suspension so that 1ml = 1mg. From what I understand I cannot dissolve the tablet only in water. Or can I? I need some suspending vehicle like Ora Plus https://www.amazon.com/PADDOCK-LABORATORIES-Ora-Plus-Suspending-Vehicle/dp/B000GGHSQM/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1545007008&sr=8-1&keywords=oraplus&fbclid=IwAR12cH9g3DPzRxU3iH3A5jPDsBQPmezkOt3tnG6sGUEosNJT4IID6uPGSFI.
So the process would look like this:
- I drop my tablet in the mixing tube then add 7.5 ml of water and shake it vigorously
- Then I add 7.5 ml. Ora Plus and shake it again
- I now have a 15 ml. solution. 1ml = 1mg of mirtazapine
- My first dose would be 13.5mg so I remove 1.5ml. of the solution with syringe 
- Drink the rest (13.5 ml. of the solution)

Do I have to crush the tablet into powder before dissolving them in water?
Has anyone used this method?
I'm still trying to figure out how to do it properly. Any advice would be greatly appreciated? Thank you.
