In reply to Re: FDA, ... not 'Lawyers' to decide on this 'Issue', posted by feelndwn on May 31, 2004, at 19:27:03

Well, how I see it is had I have known I would of gotten a raw deal like this, after the horrific depression I was in, I would of just given up in the first place, for ME this is the cruelest of cruel things to happen with a clinical depression as mine. I was 1 step from Electric Shock Treatments, until Serzone helped save my life. Paxil, Elavil, Zoloft, Trazodone, Pamelor, Noritryptoline etc. etc. etc. did NOTHING, but I responded only to THIS Medication. I know Dr. Wolfe says there is no proof this is any better than the rest, BUT IT IS for Certain Individuals. I mean are we just #'s ? I mean has anyone takin the time to think well if we disrupt peoples stable life by FORCING them off of Nefazodone after many years, if they relapse and blow there brains out who cares, as long as #57 out of 7,000,000 doesn't get SEVERE Liver problems. I know Public Citizens is concerned about things, and I am glad they are, HOWEVER THEY ARE WAY OFF ON THIS ONE, AND DID NOT BOTHER TO HEAR THE USERS WHO HAVE BEEN SAVED BY THIS DRUG. Please people we are a small group, all I ask is for us to ask the FDA and whoever makes your generic, to see if there is a special program that can allow us to continue our normal life, and have this available if we sign, or agree we understand the risk. FOR EXAMPLE ----- Lets PRETEND 20,000 people died from Serzone out of 7,000,000 users an OVERESTIMATE of deaths, take the figures and it adds up to you still have way less than a 1% chance of dying, and it cuts it down to 1 out of every 350 people will die from liver failure. Now that concerns me alot more than 1 out of every 250,000 - I mean lets take the actual figures, they say 119 adverse events out of 11,000,000 worldwide users, and they say it could of been 10X the 119 due to under reporting so lets take 1,190 divided by 11,000,000 equals a 0.0001 chance of getting liver failure and a 1 in every 9,243 users you will develop it. Still minimal, this is not a MONSTER - I mean if you take 8 extra Strength Tylenol in one shot, you will most likely die of liver failure. Yet I read one guy overdosed on 16,000 mg of Serzone, he vomited and had some lethargy, and recovered, no liver problems etc. So really is it even Hepa Toxic ? Or did the people Drink and take drugs plus Serzone that died !!! I love you all for your comments, lets work together to let people hear our issues politely.

Sincerely - Tony C.
