The result was a week of extreme confusion, where I was very forgetful and had trouble even figuring out how to use the remote control. At the end of that week, my dr. did tests on me and found no elevated liver enzymes, but elevated white blood cells.

It is possible that the Serzone > Luvox switch went awry because the Luvox was making you zombified and the white blood count rise was coincidental. When you dumped both antidepressants you may simply have had a relapse of depressive symptoms (memory and cognition wipe me out first thing when I cycle into depression).
