I second what Karen said about Serzone, I had forgot about that one. I tried it to help with the anxiety from taking Adderall. It *did* work-it seemed to work the best for anticipatory anxiety than any other antidepressant I had ever taken. Unfortunately, I developed a skin pruritis (itchies) from it and it got stopped because of that. Reduced agitation quite well-was quite impressed with that. I didn't get much of an AD effect with it, however.
