I had a very good experience with lithium. After two months titrating my Zoloft dose up to 200mg with no significant response, I started to feel better *three days* after adding the Lithium. I think i was taking 900mg worth of the generic pink capsules.
This was a few years ago. I quit Zoloft because it made me virtually impotent (without diminishing my desire -- very frustrating), but that combo was probably the most effective I've ever been on. Or maybe that's just nostalgia talking; it was the first time I was ever treated, and emerging from nine months of depression was a wonderful and revolutionizing experience.
Serzone (alone and with LiCO3), on the other hand, did me absolutely no good...though as always, ymmv. :)
