I take 400 mgs. of Serzone per day not only for its anti-anxiety effects but to augment a number of other meds. The meds it affects the most (I'm going by completely non-professional personal feelings here) are:
Amitriptyline: increases potency, less Ami needed to get the job done. My p-doc says that adding Serzone to older TCA's can really lower the TCA's required effective dosage, thus, resulting in less side-effects from the TCA if it needed to be taken alone.
Neurontin: works synergistically, both seem to add longer half-lives to other meds and do a better job taking the edge off of my anxiety and depression.
Prozac: induces a smoother "feel", less wound-up, *significantly* less libido problems.
Adderall: decreases ups-and-downs, allows a much smoother feeling (Neurontin also seems to work this way with the Adderall).
Klonopin: Currently, I'm honestly not sure how Serzone effects this med at all.
