Hi all,

I am also new to the board and new to Serzone. I am interested in all comments regarding this drug. I wa son Celexa for one day and it gave a real bad case of diarrhea and nausea. I then switched to Remeron. One week later The dose was raised to 30mgs. The problem is that after two weeks I was still in the flat zone. Completely void of energy and ambition. Remeron is a calcium blocker and since I have a serious case of osteoporosis I requested something else. So now I am on the Serzone trip. Your posts have made me a little anxious about it but I will give it a chance. I started feeling much better within an hour (this is usually normal for me). I feel a little giddy right now and maybe a little hypomanic after four hours. My pdoc gave me the starter kit 50mgs twice a day for the first week, 100mgs a day for the second week, graduating to 150 starting the third week. I have been bipolar most of my life being diagnosed in '93 and started on lithium. After six years (actually four) it stopped working. Went to Depakote but had to give that up after 2 1/2 months because it was screwing up my liver function (have to save the liver if the cancer comes back)and am now taking Neurontin. Been on that for about 3 1/2 months and it seems to help the moods but doesn't help the depression much. So now I am I on the search for the right AD.
