Hi,
I was just wondering if anyone ever or is on Serzone or Wellbutrin, and if they feel thay work for them. Most importantly are there any bad side effects. I'm on Zoloft now, but I don't care for the side effects.
I'd appreciate any input.
Thanks,
Shelley

I was on Serzone for about 4 months. I could tolerate the side-effects wuite well at 200 mg, but whenever I tried to move to the normal therapeutic dose of 300mg, I got side-effects of bad tremors and confusion. I am told that this med is usually well-tolerated and was recently told that some people can tolerate it up to 600mg.

All the drugs in these psych familes made my stomach feel like it was hit by an explosion which made my suicidality intensify--the oppposite reaction from what was sought.

Pepcid AC is the best antidepressant and anti-anxiety drug I have ever found! It comforts the stomach and guts, greatly reduces nausea, dyspepsia, and all-body acute sickness/poisoning that brought on the theoretically emotional problems. I kept telling the docs if they would fix my gut, the symptom would go away. And now that by accident a GI nurse told me to take Pepcid AC--advice her doc sure was NOT telling me about--I am greatly improved and NOT SUICIDAL, and much LESS WORRIED about my guts (the starvation and poisoning and pain and weakness and sickness)and much less worried about how I am at the moment or how I will be in the next few hours, days, weeks, years, decades. Hence no suicide ideation comes around to entice me. It was pretty incessantly on my mind when the gut symptoms were bad.

Hope this helps you find your solution. But we are all different, and according to what the problem is, the solution is likely to vary. Good luck.

I take serzone for about a month and a half now. It has helped greatly with the anxiety of going out. I am a bit nervous and anxious to start my student teaching in eighteen days, but Im sure when I start I will be fine
