Serzone is being withdrawn because of hepatotoxicity. The other AD that I know of which is (relatively- we are not talking about ALCOHOL here) hepatotoxic is nardil. Also, Cylert, a stimulant used in ADD treatment, and which I have taken in the past, can damage the liver.

I think the issue with Serzone, as opposed to the other two meds, is that the liver toxicity is so unpredictable. Even so, many would argue that the risk is too minimal to warant being withdrawn. Personally, I have completely avoided alcohol for the last year because alcohol puts a lot more strain on my liver than anything else I have ever ingested (including Cylert).
