I haven't tried serzone, but I have tried Remeron which did nothing for me. I have also tried Reboxetine, and it did work quite well for my depression -- and it started working very quickly, which is a major bonus! As for the heart pounding, I did get that (as well as an almost recreational head buzz) the first two nights that I took it, but these effects quickly subsided. I strongly suggest that you give reboxetine another go, and try and get through a week of taking it (I presume you started at 4mg ?). I had no side effects (other than increased libido, which was nice, and a weird but very mild sneezing thing, which only occasionally bothered me), and like I said, it worked and worked quickly. No insomnia and I woke up in the morning refreshed, even when I had not slept enough.

> Serzone, Wellbutrin, Reboxetine, and Remeron. I've taken all of these with very little sexual problems but none of them, by themselves, worked for my depression. To be fair, I only took Reboxetine about two days. Felt like my heart was going to explode and I started at a very low dose.
> If you get on something that works, you might try gingko biloba and Viagra. They work pretty well.
> I'd like to be the scientist that hopefully develops a med that will sidestep sexual side effects and is a kick ass AD. You think Prozac generated sales?!!
