Serzone is contraindicated with MAOIs. I can't use it. I tried it for depression a while back with no success -- and furthermore it caused multiple nighttime awakenings (where without Serzone, at the time, I had just been waking up early in the morning.

I've tried a number of benzodiazepines for insomnia; I develop tolerance to them rapidly, so they aren't terribly useful to me. I've also tried trazodone, atypical antipsychotics, thioridazine (Mellaril), clonidine, tricyclics, diphenhydramine, hydroxyzine, gabapentin, chloral hydrate, and probably some I'm forgetting.

I started using Ambien 20mg this week had used it before with Nardil, with some success). It's not perfect (wears off in a few hours -- not enough), but it's better than nothing.

Take it easy.
