    been on 400mg for over 10 years, get routine liver tests every 6 months. Tried others and didn't like side effects (sexual dysfunction). Just got lab results back with elevated liver enzymes - could be nefazadone related - I hope not because I don't want to go through trying new meds and jeopardize my mental well being. Knowing this medicine could cause liver damage has been a risk, but ... Show Full Comment

    This is the one antidepressant that has worked for me with NO side effects. I was unable to tolerate the side effects of many other drugs over the years, and my doc prescribed this as a last resort. Even with this drug I can tolerate only a very small dose, 50 mg once a day, but for me it is effective. Tried a couple of times to increase the dose, but that only increased my anxiety (for which I ... Show Full Comment

    I was on this in 1997 and immediately began experiencing severe nausea. I reported this to my clinician, but was told that this was a very "clean" drug, with practically no side effects. When I continued to complain, the doctor checked the literature and assured me that (at that time, anyway) nausea was not a reported side effect. The attacks of nausea were so debilitating that I had to ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken serzone for 5 years, I have had little to no side affects. I'm starting to come off, my vision is very blurry so the Doc.s think this might be the problem.

    I have been taking Serzone (nefazone) for 14 years and it works amazingly well for me. I have no side effects. It has been the best antidepressent. All the others had terrible side effects and didn't work that well. But serzone has taken away all my depression with no se's, it is a miracle. I hope they never take it off the market. Some citizens advocacy group is trying to get the FDA ... Show Full Comment
