She is prescribed them for depression, and I mistook one for an Excedrin. She keeps several different meds in a small Excedrin bottle and it looked just like an Excedrin. I have a job interview with a drug test next week and I need to find out how long one 45mg tab will stay in my blood system.
Hello jami63m. In regards to Mirtazapine/Remeron the half life is between 12 to 14 hours. Regards pledge

People should never, ever keep multiple meds in the same bottle for this very reason. It is just too easy to make a mistake, forget what you have etc. Remeron isnt a controlled substance so it is doubtful they will be looking for it in a drug screen. Most drugs can be detected in urine around 3-5 days give or take a few days. I'm not completely sure on Remeron. It has a long half life so it may hang around longer but I dont think you'll have anything to worry about because they wont be likely to test for it. Employers are looking for illegal drugs and controlled sustances being used illegally. They could care less about whatever else you take. The only exception may be a DOT job-they restrict more stuff because if a driver gets sleepy from medication it can be a problem if he/she is driving but most jobs are just screening for controlled medications and illegal substances.

Its not going to be around next week. Tell your Mom what she does is very dangerous. Meds should be kept in the bottle they came in.
