Serzone effect for Social Phobia?

Posted by Missy on November 30, 1999, at 22:12:23

Hello, everyone. I think I've seen a few posts touting Serzone's effectiveness for social phobia. I was also able to find one or two articles in PubMed which suggested it was quite effective. In fact, one study indicated a "70% marked or moderate" effectiveness. I realize that's difficult to interpret, as most other studies only used the % citing "marked" improvement. Additionally, I suppose the thinking is that with Serzone not being an SSRI, but instead showing 5HT antagonism as well as an epinephrine effect, it is thought to have some potential benefit over SSRI's.

Any experiences with Serzone being used to treat social phobia would be very much appreciated. Also, would you mind providing (1) dosage, (2) side effects, and (3) augmentation or potentiation, including either a benzodiazepine, Buspar, Pindolol, or other.

Thanks so much.

Warmest regards,
