Too funny! But seriously, good point. I never thought of it that way.

I've seen Serzone go both ways. Some people have had a rough time early on, stuck it out, and saw dramatic improvement later. Usually around 6 weeks or so. The one thing that always seemed to linger though was some slight tiredness and slight dizziness. But that's common with a lot of drugs, not just Serzone.

I've also seen people stick it out and either not get any better or get worse. That was me. I stuck it out for two months, got worse and worse and worse. I was a worthless suicidal couchbound blob by the time I finally pulled the plug on Serzone.

The dizziness, nausea, and diarreha are without question some nuisance side effects, which should mostly go away. It's the weepiness that scares me. If it's making you more depressed, that's probably not a good sign. Could this weepiness pass? Yes it could. But maybe not. Flip a coin. Obviously though the drug is not correcting your chemical imbalance directly, and may even be influencing it in a negative way. Through a chain reaction domino type effect over time, it could get better. But so far it meets all the characteristics of what I call an inferior match. You want a superior match. There are so many good drugs to choose from, no sense in being generous to one that makes you weepy. Just my opinion though.
