Sounds like John had the doc from Hell! My first pdoc ever told me if I stopped taking Prozac I'd be be a suicidal alcoholic by 40. He'd also get very defensive when I asked about other courses of action...

Cindy, how quick did you get up to that Serzone dosage? My doctor took me up very gradually. Brief spates of irritability, spaciness, and altered states of sleeping, only lasted a few days. Some Doctors start patients out at 200 mg per day, which is what I'm on after three weeks.

Arguably, the Serzone seems less effective on obsessive thoughts (killing oneself, supervising your own actions)than do the SSRIs. Perhaps there is an adjunct along those lines for you.

I do get sorta groggy for several hours after my morning dose of Serzone. I start feeling useful in the afternoon and don't get tired until very late. Seeing as I have to take it with food, I can't take the AM dose much earlier. Will this pass or should I start looking to add something for energy?

Also, How similar is Serzone to Trazadone? I knew someone who was taking Traz. as an anti-psychotic. He stopped taking it because it killed his dreams and creative impulse. I'm a writer and need my creative impulses. Can I expect this emptiness from Serzone?
