I'm betting your brain will work just fine.

There are times when I've had sometimes-embarrassing word-finding dificulties on Serzone (can happen with SSRI's too, you know), but plenty of other times when the words -- and ideas -- have flowed better than they ever did pre-Serzone. In fact, at work, my best analyses in years -- which earned several awards and bonuses for creativity and impact -- were put together while I was taking Serzone (along with Klonopin and Provigil).

Now, if I could only remember what they were...
(*mostly* joking...)

>Now all of this cognitivve dulling talk makes me nervous. I have felt "stupider" on Serzone and on WB before that. With Serzone I'm forgetful and spacey (like walking into rooms ALL the time and forgetting why), and I find I get tongue-tied a LOT. It gets embarrassing. I can't remember the words I want to say and have to pause or let others finish my sentence, or trying to use many lesser words to say what I could once say in one word. EX: I had a horrible time one day trying to describe "sentimental value" to someone because I couldn't come up with the words. I don't seem to notice the WB problem so much, or maybe they've folded in together.
On the other hand, as my pdoc has pointed out, I have been under a lot of stress lately, and it's only going to get worse for awhile; I'm going back to college fulltime after 19 years at the end of this month. I hope my brain works.

Thanks.
Allison
