In reply to Re: Serzone users please reply - Thanks Judy!!, posted by Carolyn T on July 18, 1999, at 8:09:22

I'm sorry to say that I have to answer your question about having any good days on Serzone with a loud, resounding NO! If there was any benefit at all, I may have slept through it! I too am searching for an even close-to-normal sex life on AD's. If Serzone allowed it, I don't know - I was too exhausted to even find out!

I know well your fear of trying other AD's; but always keep in mind that you can't judge how you'll respond to an AD by anyone else's experience or even the side effects listed on the bottle. It does seem to me, though, where you have seen some improvement with Serzone, that maybe a different dose might be a possible answer (ask your doctor what he/she thinks about this). It also seems a good sign that, even if Serzone is not quite the right drug for you, your brain has responded positively at least in part, which seems to suggest that you're on the right track and you might respond even more positively to a different but similar AD.

What a shame that we all have to play this trial and error "game" with AD's; but when you DO find the right one (or combo), you're golden!

Good luck - you're never alone! Judy

> Judy, Thank-you for sharing your experience with me. I was on Paxil for about 18 months and felt it was time to be done with treatment for my depression. With my Phyiscian's approval I tapered off Paxil and had been off it for a year when depression reared it's ugly head at me again. It reared up at me in the form of extreme anxiety with feelings of unreality - went to emergency room. So I was and am determined to not take an anti-depressant that interferes with my ability to have a normal & enjoyful sex life, which is the effect Paxil had on me. Paxil & Serzone are the only anti-depressants I have tried & to be frank I am fearful of trying others.
> What is strange about this Serzone is that as many days that I have inappropiate anger and feel I want to just rage, I have great days where I feel so at peace & think everything is alright with the world!!! The bad days do out weigh the good, unfortunately. I am starting to suspect the good days are linked to my ability (if I am lucky) to get good quality sleep the night before.May be not! Judy did you have any good days on Serzone? Thanks!!!
