: : I recently had a pacemaker put in and a stent for blockage, my fear has skyrocketed and my Dr. has given me Serzone to take. I have had bad luck with seritonin based drugs and have had some really scarey episodes with them. I am so afraid to take the Serzone for fear it will get me too. Please has anyone taken Serzone and what were the side affects. My anxiety attacks are getting worse and I know I need to do something !!
: Dear Jo,
: Please scroll down and read my post on the 20th, titled "My Serzone Update: Just Checking In".
: (sorry if I didn't get that just right)
: But if you read that post, I won't have to repeat everything I said there.
: Jo, are you taking anything for anxiety? Because Serzone is good for depression, but you may need something for anxiety, like Xanax, (which I take) or another anti anxiety med.
: SRRI's didn't do me any good either, and had lousy side effects (for me).
: Please read my other post, and I hope u also find the right treatment.
The doctor will not let me have Xanax because it is habit forming even though I can take it will no ill effects. I am so confused!
