Hi Mogger,

I have tried nefazodone (and trazodone) for depression. It didn't have any effect for me. I have wanted to try adding it in with an AD for treatment of anxiety but it is very difficult to find doctors that are willing to prescribe it because of the black box warning. The doctor who initially prescribed it for me felt that the warning was a bit exaggerated. As he put it: "I highly doubt that you are that 1 in 300,000 patient." Many people get scared away from trying it because of that though. It's certainly not a first line drug, but if you've tried other things without success and have a doctor who's willing to prescribe it, it might be worth a shot.

Best,
Cat
