Serzone: Does it even work? - I think so

Thank you all for this thread. I've found it interesting, although occasionally over my head.

I've tried Zoloft, Effexor, Remeron, lithium, Wellbutrin, Celexa, Neurontin, and Serzone over 4 years in different combos, blah, blah, blah.

I have found that WB at 150mg/2x a day and Serzone 150mg/2x a day to be the most effective so far. I started Serzone in March (I think -- I have not been paying as much attention, which might be good). Good sleep, but not as sound as Remeron. Weight loss sted that uncontrollable gain. I don't feel I obsess as much as I used to. Sometimes when anxiety from special circumstances comes up, I take low dose Ativan.

My pdoc was looking to MAOIs as the next step, but I was very reluctant. The Serzone was one of those nearing-the-end, why-not-give-it-a-try types of prescriptions. My pdoc said he'd had very little luck with it, but then said that I never react to drugs in the way he expects. It's working.

Then again, some circumstances in my life have changed for the better in the last 10, 6 and 2 months. How to gauge? Can't.

I do hope they keep it on the market. I'm feeling a whole lot better.

Thanks again for the info.
