Re: Lamictal + Serzone anyone? Hattree

Thanks, Hattree..
It's good to hear some positive feedback on Serzone -- I was browsing through the archives and found mostly negative reports.

If you don't mind me asking, are you bipolar? I just found out that I most likely am bipolar (with mostly depression) so that explains why most antidepressants don't work for me like they do for others. I'm wondering if Serzone will just be another AD that I react negatively to.

Another question -- does the Zoloft make you sedated? I was on it for quite a long time several years ago, and I was exhausted the entire course of treatment. It helped my mood, but I can't afford to be a zombie now that I have a toddler to take care of.

Thanks again for your reply,

> I actually don't find Serzone sedating, and I take it along with Zoloft and Lamictal (just recently added it because when I took it in the past it kept my weight under control, and seems to be helping again--never did make me especially tired). I was already doing well on Lamictal, I'm not seeing any particular difference with the Serzone, but I'm not taking very much.

I am med sensitive, and seem to get fatigued by almost all the drugs out there (all the SSRIs, antipsychotics, even stimulants after a few days will poop out and leave me exhausted.)
