Serzone; How Long Till It Works????

I just started taking Serzone, gradually dosing up and am now at 300 mg daily in 2 divided doses [150 mg twice a day] [taking it less than 3 weeks]. I felt better the 2nd day! Now I have breakthrough depression and am feeling blue and teary sometimes. Anybody on Serzone who has any information or comments. Anybody successful? Thanks.
Joy

I agree - any day now, you'll feel a vast improvement. It took about four weeks with me, and after seven weeks or so my depression was so much better!

Let us know how you feel in a week or so!

Re: Serzone; How Long Till It Works????

Thank you to both respondentsfor your posts. I am now on Serzone 4 weeks, and increased my dose to 500 mgs. The last two days I feel better, but I will give it a couple of more weeks to see that it lasts. I hope it works for me permanently. Just for the lack of side effects alone make it worthwhile if it works! Anybody have insomnia from this med like I do?

Joy,

Glad you're feeling a little better now. I hope you continue to feel that way! The insomnia should disappear soon - it's a common side effect with the drug that generally disappears within two months of starting a course. Keep us updated!

Thank you Rachel. I just came from my pdoc, and I will go off Serzone and start Zoloft. I gave it just over 4 weeks [500 mg]. It's not for me.I will inquire on the Board about Zoloft. Thanks for your support.
