Boy, I didn't know alcohol consumption was such a *hot* topic! For the record, I was only talking about having drinks once or twice a month. Also, most of you had the response that you don't drink at all because you will give up "anything" in hopes of getting better. Unfortunatly, some of us reach the point where we are so tired of trying so hard and still not feeling any better, that(even for only one evening), the "price" for a few hours of pleasantly altered brain chemistry, just doesn't seem all that high. Actually, I did go through a "no alcohol" period for the first couple years of attempting to find the right anti-depressant, but after a while the need for just a night or two a month of "real" laughter, overrides the fears of alcohol setback.
*Now, to Jane*: My doctor just put my Serzone dose up to 225 mgs a few days ago(after I spent a whole day crying in my bed!). I really haven't felt any difference at all, since beginning the medication almost 3 weeks ago. Also, I am on 300mgs. per day of Wellbutrin, which was prescribed first with the Serzone being added in because the Wellbutrin was having no effect what-so-ever. Actually, though, I am having one side effect from Serzone, my brain is like a sieve full of quicksand! My short term memory is shot, as well as what little coordination I use to have, and it can take me 2 or 3 minutes(if at all) to "find" specific words during conversations or while writing(this is kind of amusing, actually. I come up with some very funny substitutes for the words I really want!). My point is: I'll be happy to keep you posted, but you will have to remind me! CarolAnn
