It sounds as though Serzone worked for you at a certain dose, yet once you were beyond that, it didn't.

Why didn't you go back to it at the dose at which it worked? If you miss the window can't you regain the feeling again on that same dose? I've missed the window many times from going up too quickly. This was in one of my deepest depressions and I think the pdoc thought a higher dose was needed.

I think you responded to one or more of my posts and commented that you and I had similar symptoms of depression. Social phobia, dysthymic, etc.

Serzone is one of the only meds I haven't tried. Right now I'm on Celexa 40 mg, Wellbutrin 200 mg and Neurontin 200-300 mg. The Neurontin was just added, but I don't think I'm bipolar, although I have commented to my pdoc that when I went off AD's entirely, my inital sx of depression were agitation, hyperness, etc. I felt like I was handling things beautifully until I crashed big time. Did you ever try Neurontin? Effects?

So many times I'm not sure how to classify my depression and my doc isn't either. We just keep trying different mixes, but never seem to hit the right combination.

What are you taking now and how is it working? My combo is OK, but I 'm still trying for the right mix. Unfortunately my insurance runs out the end of this month and I won't have the luxury of continual trials. I was hoping to find a better mix this month.

Send me your list of best and worst combos. That might be a good category for everyone. Thanks
