> > I was prescribed luvox for my panic attacks and my ocd. It has given me my life back. I'm not saying it would work for you but serzone did not work for me either. Hope this helps....
> Thanks for the reply. Serzone was a nightmare to me, and it started almost immediatly. Within the first 24 hours at least. It was like low-grade acid. I know this because when I was a kid I did LSD sometimes. Not something I'd recomend doing to anyone. I don't care what anyone says, that shit is just FN stupid and dangerous. Alot of kids are still doing it and loving it. All I gotta say is think before you do that shit. Also, my Dr. told me Serzone, Prozac, Zoloft, Paixil, and all their little friends affect the same part of the brain that LSD affects. So, all those drugs and the rest of them in that family drives me up the wall!!! I'm doing 1mg of Klonopin in the morning and at night, along with 50mg of Pamalor at night. It works for me. Good luck to all you guys with Panic Disorder. If you find that the anti depressants your Dr. prescribed you is driving you crazy, try mentioning trying a drug from the TRICYCLINE family. Some Dr.s will say they're old drugs, and they'll try to put you on something "newer and better". Just reply with a, Yeah-yeah, thanks for the update, but let's try a TRICYCLINE.

I think that's just a typo, but it is actually tricyclic, not tricycline. The tricyclics are older antidepressants, of which Pamelor is one of about a dozen in that family. While SSRIs (Prozac, Zoloft, etc) affect just serotonin, the tricyclics affect a bunch of different things. They do affect serotonin as well, same as LSD, but not in such a concentrated exclusive way that SSRIs do. I agree, if SSRIs cause trouble, the TCAs (tricyclics) were quite effective in their day, and are only less popular today because they do generally have more side effects. They were and still are great medicines.
