Hi Scott.

It seems that ziprasidone (Geodon), an atypical antipsychotic with antidepressant potential, really is free of the side effect of weight-gain. I'm taking 40mg now, a relatively low dosage. So far, I haven't noticed any increase in my appetite. I did, however, with as little as 2.5mg of Zyprexa. Many people have reported a significant antidepressant effect from it. I give you kudos for hanging in there with Serzone. Like you, I have found myself to be far less tolerant of side effects now than I was 20 years ago. It's a bit ironic, because I can afford far less to give up on a medication so quickly. I'm ready to begin a trial of Remeron. I am sure that I'm going to hate it. I don't tolerate sedating or soporific drugs very well, and I'll be pissed as hell if I gain weight. Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of picking and choosing. I guess you know the feeling.

Good luck.

- Scott
