In 'Google,' I read that Citizen Adovocate asking Nefadozone should also be taken off the market, but in my guess, Nefadozone will stay on the market for awhile as seeing this 'Generic' came to the market NOT long ago, .... around the fall of last year, 2003 or a bit earlier.
Anyhow, its maker, Mylan Laboratories Inc. has also some consideration over this issue. If there is substantial profit of making/selling Nefadozone, they may NOT take Nefadozone off the market. On the otherhand, Citizen Consumer's group will NEVER quit harass over this med. Generic form, Nefadozone since they want both Serzone and Nefadozone to disappear from the market. There are more than 'ten' topics/articles regarding Serzone, in 'Google' search and VERY good ones to read about this issue.
For me, .... recalling back when Serzone was first rxed by my pdoc., he said Serzone is not 'addictive,' unlike other ADs. .... easily getting off Serzone without any withdrawal syndome. However, I started concern over after having read many of posts saying NOT easy to get Serzone/nefadozone off your system.

In the meantime, I do not need to worry about this terribly,... 'taking Serzone off the market' since I am already on Nefadozone and for this, I have no complain about.
However, if there is any romour about Nefadozone's fate, ... then I need to discuss over this with my pdoc. at my next appt., next month whether I should taper it off gradually or what else I should be done. Until then, I can NOT afford myself too much stressed out over this issue, 'discontinuation.'
BTW, I e-mailed both Mylan and FDA asking NOT discontinue Nefadozone.
