combination of prozac and serzone

Posted by karen gibble on August 23, 1998, at 15:32:33

Can people with more experience than myself...I am a recent graduate having my masters in psychiatric nursing and pursuing prescriptive privileges. I have a client who presents with a long history of major depression...she is 44 yo also Dx with PTSD. Has been on Prozac for 12 years(? approx) and is maxed at 80 mg/day has also been on trazodone for approx 12 years and is up to 150 mg at bedtime. She experiences breakthrough depression symptoms and is having problems with nightmares and has been for years. A family doc is suggesting she stop the trazodone and begin taking serzone at bedtime. She also tales claritin and doc just started her on flonase. She frequently takes OTC antihistamines for frequent alergy/sinus problems. I am concerned about the OTC antihistamine use and serzone. Also should she be weaned off trazodone first? and is Prozac and serzone a good combo...I've not heard of it in the past...any and all thouights appreciated!! Thanks!
