In reply to Re: SERZONE - CONCENTRATION / AGITATION, posted by Noa on October 30, 1999, at 8:09:53

> My doc had me do this kind of gradual increase. It still caused some of the agitation. But, like I said earlier, it went away.
Have been taking Serzone for the past month (second time I tried it, with a trial of Zoloft in between...Zoloft was terrible...I could get excited but not get anywhere!
Both times I started Serzone, I felt the dizziness, fatigue, disorientation, etc. people have described along with an irritation and rage. The rage is not going away, however! For a couple days this week, I felt like killing myself then started directing my anger outwards (having been a totally passive doormat most of the time until now). People are looking at me like I'm a mad dog. Hope the rage lifts soon! Does anybody have any suggestions for combining an OCD SSRI with Serzone? The Serzone definitely makes life easier to cope but I still have visual side effects and the OCD obsessions and compulsions are much worse since I stopped the Luvox I was also taking (sexual side effects again). Two days ago, I got a pill splitter and started on a homeopathic dose of Luvox (only 9 mg instead of l50 mg/day), to see if the gradual approach recommended by people on this list will help. Hope my psychiatrist doesn't get angry when I let him know that in two weeks, but I decided that was better than thinking really awful thoughts (e.g., imagining driving my car off a cliff or into traffic, worrying about harming living things, etc.).
Perhaps I should decrease the Serzone...what dose do most people find allows them to feel less depressed without feeling the rage? Thanks!--Cindy
