Better Treatments For Breathlessness In Palliative And End Of Life Care
Purpose:

People with emphysema or lung scarring frequently have breathlessness at rest, dressing, showering or preparing meals, despite best treatment for the disease. Globally, no medication is approved for this breathlessness. This 6 country study will test mirtazapine, a medication usually used in depression, reducing breathlessness even if people are not depressed. This study will give mirtazapine or a sugar tablet (on a coin toss) for 8 weeks to measure benefits and harms on worst breathlessness.
