> Hey folks...just wanted to let everyone know the generic of Serzone, Nefazedone, is still available in Canada.

Not available at my regular pharmacy (BC), I just tried to refill my regular script today. Not even generics. It seems to be a "voluntary" pulling of stock. When this has happened before with other meds, usually all the pharmacies fall in line within a week or so.

I may call a few other drugstores, but unfortunately the refill was on an Rx with another item, so it would take a bit of running around to get it transferred or see the doc again.

I am transferring to Lamictal anyway, but I had hoped for another 30 days worth of Serzone to get me through the long buildup to full A/D dosage (100mg/day or more, judging from most people's experience here). My current plan is to stretch out the Serzone I have left at 300/200/100 mg/day, which will just take me to the beginning of Lamictal at the 100 mg level. Heaven help me if I develop the rash! Sigh....

Why couldn't they just put a stronger warning for liver problems on the Serzone, and let the Dr's and pharmacists do their job!!
