I have been on 30mg of Cilift for panic disorder for the past 3 years and lately my panic attacks have come back with a vengeance threatening another agoraphobic onset - I have not been agoraphobic for 11 years now, but am fast starting to avoid places I didnt think about avoiding in the past. Today at my doctors room I had such a severe attack I could not walk due to my trembling and muscles being in a spasm. How embarrassing to have to be escorted because I looked like I was a muscle dystrophy sufferer - thats how physical my symptoms became!!!...has this happened to anyone else before? From tomorrow I will be starting 50mg serdec. Any advise on what side effects I can expect? Thanks
I am on 150 mg Serdep, with Urbanol 5 mg two times a day. Only side effect is my mouth is always dry, I drink a lot of water. Otherwise I cannot complain, I am a different person than the one who always avoided places, people, did not sleep, eat right, had anger attacks that I actually blacked out. Give Serdep a chance, it takes 6 weeks to really change the chemicals in your brain and for your body to get used to it!!! Good luck.

How long have you been on Serdep? I am now in wk 5 - had a great 1st wk on 10mg Cilift and 50mg Serdep. Then it stopped helping. On 100mg on Serdep and 10mg Cilift for 2 wks now, but still not seeing a major difference. Was booked off for 2 wks, went to work yesterday and had 3 panic attacks while driving so stayed home again today. Any idea when the meds will take effect? I am in high pressured job and do not want to lose it due to incapacity.

I have been on medication for depression since 2004 after lots of stress. Started with Cymbalta which worked fine but I gained a lot of weight. Was then switched to Zoloft and have been on Zoloft for years now. Stopped once about two years ago (also thought I can manage on my own) but a week saw me back on Zoloft again. It is non habit forming and I dont gain extra weight. I can really recommend Zoloft. Our pharmacist issues generics at times and I now received Serdep. Am a bit anxious

Serdep and Depression / Anxiety
Hi, thanks for this group therepy. I have had many bad experienes in my life which eventually led to anxiety attacks and falling into a deep depression for 3 years - and being admitted to hospital on 2 occasssions. I now finally have the bad depression under control and Thank God for that. But still have to live with my anti-depression tabs and sleeping tablets. My Pschycitrist (hope the spelling is correct)....also put me on 50mg Serdep which I take just before bedtime. During the day I have another tablet 3x a day to just keep me calm and relaxed. My recommendation is - only keep in tough with persons who understand and love you and has walked the road with you,. K havde a dog who I love to bits, and I can honestly say she is my lifeline. the loe I get from my best four legged riend is the best thepapyy around. Youa ree not alone....remember live is tought, and the older you get the weaker the fighting system becomes. Do not take other people seriuously, and just walk each day with God.....and allw youself lots of time for ourself. Take care and never stop beliefing in your own capabilities.
Hello Zelda, het jy al 'n Psigiater gaan sien? 'n Gewone huisdokter kan nie depresssie simptome korrek behandel en diagnoseer nie. Ek is nog steeds op my Serdep voor slaaptyd en Adco-Alzam 3x perdag, ek moet erken dit vat daardie angs gevoel weg en as ek my pilletjie die oggend eers laterig drink dan kan ek voel dat ek soort van "beheer verloor" oor my spraak en begin liggies te bewe. Is maar een van die dinge, die lewe is hard, en mens moet maar die medikasie neem. Maar ek sal nog aanbe

Serdep and Anger
I have been taking 50 mg serdep since march 2013. In December I ran out of the pills and started weening myself off, I am now serdep free for almost 2 months and some times have symptoms like heart pulputations and "brain zaps", However I am battling the most with extreme anger bursts. I am not an angry person and never have been. I am wondering if this is perhaps a symptom of coming off the serdep or is it just a coincidence.
I was on cylift 2x 20mg for many moths di not help much My Dr. in consultation with my psyc.put me on Serdep which I now have been using for two weeks. I can already feel the difference more relaxed and sleeping well. So far so good.

I was taking it for 5 months last year, and this Jan i stopped completely. What i have noticed about myself is that i can't get angry for the past 3 weeks since i off of them. But reading your comment how you are getting anger bursts gives me some comfort that its plausible for that to happen to me as well. Thanks for your comment. I want anger. Later i will understand it again (as to why it happens) like i did before when i was not on meds, and then accept it. I think its a side effect of comi

I'm scared that if i go off the meds i'll become depressed again, but i'm more scared about what it would do to my pregnancy and baby.
