Rick - I have seen doses of Serzone used from 75mg once daily to 150mg twice daily, in cases where I have "thought" that the doc was trying to manipulate blood levels of other medication. I was not always privy to what the docs were doing. I was also usually not told what the blood levels of concomittant meds were. Sometimes, I think, that poor absorbers of medications (eg. certain benzos, clozapine, clomipramine, come to mind) were given Serzone to increase the levels that they were absorbing. I feel that using this method to increase is not a primary, nor a secondary choice, but a last gasp.

I am definitely not saying that anyone should use this method to increase blood levels of other meds, as I know of no studies that show how much of an increase any particular dose of Serzone would produce.

I guess that I am saying that I would be extremely uncomfortable using this method without being under the close watch of a physician. There are just too many variables involved; and most of these variables are not realized until after the fact.

Sorry - Cam
