Hi. Just want to say that I am on serdep 100mg a day and it is amazing. I use it for anxiety attacks. I drink my tablet before I go to bed cause if I drinked it in the morning I feel I could not start my day and just want to go back to bed. I am in serdep now for 6 years. I found that 75 mg was not good. I was 2 months in 120 mg but I found that a bomb could explode and I wouldnt care. 100mg was and is perfect for me. I would recommend serdep to anyone. Just dont forget to drink it or stay a few days without it cause you get headaches and just feel nausea.

Hi, I am going to start my serdep journey on Friday. I am so scared of any medication. I struggle with extreme anxiety, so much so that I become numb in my hands and I feel that my heart is not mine...... will you say that It will be ok for me? I see that you are happy with your meds, how long before the anxiety started to fade away?

My daughter just started on this but it actually causes panic attacts. Is this normal.

It is normal to get anxiety for the first week. Once it settles in it should be better

Janice
I was on Venlor 37.5mg only took one tablet that night had to been rushed to hospital. Dr put me on Serdep 50mg must start with half tablet for first 7 days. A bit scared that if will do the same as the venlor how do you people find the serdef is it working for anxiety.

Worried

June 3, 2015

I've been on 100mg Serdep for a couple of years. My Psychiatrist increased it to 200mg in January 2015. I just found out I am pregnant. Can I still continue using it?

Have been taking melatonin for almost a week now - still struggling with insomnia. Was on Wellbutrin which I had to stop due to developing a terrible skin rash. On serdep for 2 days now.

When is the best time to take serdep, morning or at night. Presently I am on 50mg at night and not sleeping well. I also battle to get my day started. Can a person change the pattern and rather try taking it in the morning? I'm a bit apprehensive to try.

I couldnt keep my eyes open during the day. I am on 100mg and take mine in the evening and works perfectly.

Meant to be taken in the morning.

I had the same problem. Was struggling with sleepiness during the day. I switched to to morning, and is definitely better for me. I'm on 50mg

Serdep
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 have been on serdep for 6 years after a terrible accident and I lost my husband. Serdep 100mg help prevent my anxiety and panic attacks. It took a while to work. Started on 50g and worked my way up to 100mg. It helps alot with my flashbacks. I dont get them anymore.

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
