Re: Think twice Dee!

In reply to Serzone and Busbar?, posted by Dee on November 18, 1999, at 13:14:17

I would definitely think twice about bagging the Serzone altogether!!!

I say this just because almost anything you switch to will have dramatically more side effects. Many drugs that seem better at keeping anxiety/panic away are still susceptible to ebbs, depending on your particular chemistry. They will also bring on much heavier side effects. The SSRIs are a good example. I found them a more potent anxiety blocker, but a drink or two would toss that out of whack days later. And I need not mention the side effects.

What kind of anxiety are we talking about here? Social phobia, panic attacks?

different adjuncts may by able to address the anxiety. I added Buspar to my Prozac years ago to help dissipate sexual dysfunction. I also tried it before Sserzone just to address anxiety issues, but I never went higher than 10-15mgs per day. It didn't work at that dose, but from what I'm reading in Babble, the theraputic dose is much higher.

I'm also reading in Babble that some people have found success with Klonopin at theraputic doses w/out becoming a zombie or a 1950s housewife. That is awfully subjective, I imagine.

Bottom line, adding the Buspar can't hurt, but you may regret kicking Serzone to the curb (I really like its passive effectiveness myself. It doesn't completely cure me of all my emotional downsides, but it leaves me feeling human and more functional.)
