Input requested on Serzone

Posted by Lynn on April 25, 2000, at 16:56:53

Hi, I'm new to this board. You all sound VERY knowledgable about antidepressant meds and switching and or using some in combination. I've been treated for depression with anxiety for the past four years with Zoloft(100mg) and a small amount of Doxepin(10)mg with moderate success. Recently it appeared to be less effective, and I found myself crying again. My Dr. wanted me to try Effexor, but I had heard its pretty activating (nervousnes/insomnia) and read horror stories about withdrawl should I ever need to get off it. I was put on Remeron instead, at a higher dose to combat sedation. I tried it for two weeks, but couldn't believe how stoned it makes you feel at first. It also caused a wierd "rush" feeling which caused an anxiety attack. So, I ended up going on St. John's Wort for a few weeks, but wasn't able to sleep and my Dr. said I couldn't mix anything with it as far as antidepressants to address the sleep problem.
So, after a month of this, I went back to the Zoloft/Doxepin. I don't have much faith in this combination since it stopped working and I'm not even sure if starting it again after a month will work now or not. I am thinking of giving Serzone a try. I get really bad PMS though and don't need the "anger" symptoms that I've read about. Any advice would be very appreciated. Thanks and peace to all. Lynn
