Sid, I haven't ruled out effexor xr (I WAS trying the XR), but will keep it in mind for future. I read that serzone and effexor xr can possibly make a good combo for various reasons which can be found on these archives. And it seems the serzone could help with the insomnia probs of effexor that deterred me (I already pop chinese herbs or valerian most nights).
Anyway, I think what I am learning is that this takes patience and attention.
I am leaning towards Serzone right now, as it seems like a gentle first step with potentially less side effects. It worked for my dad for over a year, and for better or worse, I seem to have inherited his chemistry.
I have this nagging suspicion, though, that PROZAC would probably be more reliably effective. However, when I took it 3 years ago (for 1 month), I felt less depressed, but numbed out. No lows, but no highs either (a bummer for a passionate dramatist).
We'll see, if Serzone doesn't quite do it, then perhaps an augment with Prozac.
And definitely lots of self observation. Maybe I'll finally keep that "tides" chart.
