Mirtazapine: Supply issue resolved

Supply of mirtazapine has now been awarded to Noumed.

New product: Noumed 

From 1 August 2021, we listed a new brand of mirtazapine ("Noumed"). We had to make this change because Apotex, the previous supplier, was leaving the New Zealand market. 

Noumed brand mirtazapine is Medsafe approved.
