Re: serzone/nefazodone

In reply to Re: serzone/nefazodone - Do I need to switch AD's?, posted by Carolyn on August 18, 1999, at 21:33:46

I have been watching this board for a few months now, but I've never posted and I really don't
know if I'm doing this right. If I'm not, just let me know what I need to do.
I know how frustrating it is to find the right AD and the right dosages. I have been trying to
do that myself for a couple of years. I've been on several: amitriptyline, effexor, paxil, celexa,
and I'm now on serzone. Serzone takes a long time to begin working in your system. I started out a few
months ago on a low dose of 50 mgs twice a day for 1 week, then 100mg 2x per day for 1 week, 150 2x per
day 3 weeks. At this point I didn't like it and it wasn't working and I was getting worse again. I was
needed to take xanax with it almost everyday. I wasn't able to focus, I didn't feel right, I was very
monotone. Since then every 3 or 4 weeks my dosage was upped. Now I take 600 mgs a day. 200 in the am and
400 at bedtime. It is working much better now and I haven't taken any xanax in 2 weeks. Serzone has a
minimum effective theraputic dose at 300 mgs a day, so I've been told. So, possibly if you're not feeling
alright your dosage may be to low. It also has side effects that have went away with time, for me.
