It probably doesn't matter which you add first.

Serzone and trazodone (Desyrel) are very similar
and should THEORETICALLY help block the sexual
side effects and sleep side effects of
SSRI's. That said, there many ways that MIGHT
help minimize the side effects of SSRI's--they
each have varying effectiveness and some
drawbacks--very few have been systematically
studied. Some of the possibilities include:
lowering the dose of the SSRI, weekend holidays
off the SSRI, adding Buspar or Trazodone or
Serzone or Wellbutrin or Dexedrine or Remeron...

> I have recently read one article that claims combining Serzone with Prozac can eliminate the sexual side effects as well as agitation and insomnia. This article stated that you must first start with the Serzone (up to 200 mgs) then add in the Prozac (10mg to 40mg). Does anyone have any experience using these two drugs together (especially for OCD)? If I try this combo, what side effects should I be aware of? It seems like it would be similar to using Prozac, BuSpar and Trazadone together which I did O.K. on exept for the sexual side effects, agitation and headaches. Does anyone think this could be the magical combo I've been looking for or just another experiment that is a waste of time? Please respond with any info. or advice that you think may help me decide. Thanks very much in advance.
