Hi Noa. So sorry for the hard times. I know that feeling when it takes every ounce I have to get out the door. That's one of the hardest things I've ever done. I can relate and I feel for you.

You are taking Serzone, right? You know, everything you are describing smells of Serzone. I felt that way exactly on Serzone. And I've heard of others with the same experience. The more I think about it the more I'm tempted to point the finger at Serzone. Don't get me wrong. It's a great drug. But when it doesn't work with someone, it rEEAAlly doesn't work. Can make things a LOT worse.

If I remember correctly and you are taking Serzone, well, maybe you might consider withdrawing it. Not sure what else to try instead, but please reply and refresh my memory of what you've already tried. Of all the mood stabilizers, Lithium has the solid track record, especially when used as an adjunt with an AD. I understand your hesitance with it though, and personally I think Lamictal is a great choice. I say that because I am side-effect-sensitive, and Lamictal has always been easy to handle for me. For me it's not a cure-all, but it does have antidepressant and stabilizing qualities to it. Again though, I am real suspect of your Serzone. Take that out of the mix and you might get a whole lot better. There must be a better choice to replace it. Maybe not a TCA, but something. What haven't you tried?
