In reply to COMING OFF OF SERZONE OR NEFAZODONE HELP, posted by Tony C. on June 22, 2004, at 12:15:33

My mom quit cold turkey and had no problems whatsoever. i have talked to a few that have weaned off slowly and had very little problems as well. Remember that it is normal to be somewhat depressed or anxious in life--family issues set me off too. When I feel pangs of an anxiety attack coming on it also makes me want to increase my meds! But I have to remind myself that anxiety is an indicator that something is wrong or depressing me and needs to be addressed (it is a normal part of life and is not meant to hurt us)....we've all heard this before...sometimes I just need a reminder, and I thought you might appreciate one too! Life's no fun if medication numbs our emotions completely, right? :) Good luck weaning off your meds--try to stay relaxed and don't mess with yourself--i think a lot of us sit around and wait for withdrawal symptoms and side effects to happen and in this way we MAKE them happen ourselves. Oh the power of the mind! :) Don't get me wrong..I know there are withdrawal symptoms and side effects it is just that us sensitive people like to make it harder for ourselves....So frustrating. My doctor advised me to take about three months to slowly wean off serzone/nefazodone when I decide to. I have decided to stay on my full dose for the next few months--a huge life change is about to take place and I don't want to go off my meds, freak out and fail---looks like the generic will be around for awhile anyway. Once again, GOOD LUCK. Do some yoga, watch your sugar, alcohol, nicotine and caffeine and do lots of nice things for yourself! :)
