I agree with the post quoted below so far. Have really experience the irritability, crying, abdominal pain (headache only once), but have experienced some relief of depression. It's early on though. Even with that, it's been worth it so far.

I've ramped up to in excess of 500 mgs a day, and might kick it up to 600. The good thing is that, for me at least, Serzone has far fewer side effects than SSRI's, which basically, I can't tolerate at even minimal therapeutic doses.

I have yet to get a liver test. I just started Serzone in January.

I'll try to post periodically to update on how I'm doing on Serzone.

Good luck to you all. I'm glad this is still in the arsenal of things to try.

> Serzone does work, and I've found it has side effects that are sometimes similar, but much *less* than SSRIs. The bad thing about serzone is that when you start taking it, it can really be a bitch to get used to it. Irritability, crying, abdominal pain, headaches, and extreme lethargy were the main ones for me.... Serzone is a subtle medicine, and it's effects will come out over time. ... Good luck.
