I'm new to this and I suffer from depression w/anxiety. I just started on Serzone six days ago at a 50mg dosage. The first full day I felt better than I have in years. I laughed, I smiled, I felt great. The next day it was like I crashed. Then I started getting tension in my neck and irritable which caused a tension headache. This went on for three days. It seemed like I was having withdrawl symptoms but from what? It allows more seretonin and norepinephrine in your brain so that doesn't make sense. I have felt calmer overall, energetic but I have been having a problem concentrating and focusing at work the last two days. I didn't have any tension today at all which was good. I'm getting tested for ADD, not the hyperactive kind, the inattentive, easily distracted kind. May be this is exacerbating those symptoms. Hell, I don't know. I have been feeling like doing more things that I enjoy so that makes me happy. Give it some time. I've been yelling at my family for three days which I hope will pass. I'm keeping a journal and writting down how I feel each day to show to my doctor in two weeks and let her decide whether I should continue with this or switch. I tried prozac about 5 years ago for a month and it made me wacky so I stopped taking it and haven't taken anything since. Was a very bad experience and I guess I needed time to get over it before I could trust someone again to prescribe for me.

I wish all of you good mental health. Hang in there.
