> allison - I'm glad to see that you're doing well and that the serzone continues to work for you. Since serzone was the drug from hell for me, i guess you and i are no longer on the same drug track. (-: After dropping serzone last summer, I managed to do okay on just WB Sr. for a few months and have only recently added lamictal. I've not really noticed any difference yet but I've only just reached 100 mgs and maybe it'll take a longer period of time to quantify.

Rick - I know of no reason why you can't mix serzone and wb since allison is doing it so successfully. Wb never really gave me a lot of anxiety although the wb-serzone mix made me feel variously over-drugged or anxious. For me, an occasional dose of xanax was helpful. My main longer term problem with serzone (aside from it's ineffectiveness) was a cognitive dulling. It affected my motor skills also - I was always dropping stuff. I attributed all of this (mostly forgetfulness) to perimenopause and stress until I went off serzone. All of these symptoms then disappeared.

I know it's worked well for lots of people - my experience is that we all react very idiosyncratically to these drugs so its hard to predict what might work for someone. I had high hopes for it, however, that just didn't pan out.
