Serzone (Nefazodone) Addiction And Abuse
Low levels of the chemical serotonin within the body are believed to contribute to depression and other mood disorders. Serotonin is also believed to affect digestion, appetite, memory, sleep and even sexual function. Serzone helps to regulate this neurotransmitter and keep your brain chemicals balanced.
Serzone is prescribed to treat most forms of depression. Your doctor may prescribe this medication when other antidepressants haven’t influenced your condition, as nefazodone can increase your risk of liver disease. Be sure to continue to take this medication as prescribed to receive the full effect of the treatment. Your doctor may start you on a low dose of Serzone and increase the dosage as needed for the severity of your condition.
Taking extra medication can be extremely dangerous and increases your risk of an overdose. Symptoms such as vomiting, severe nausea, seizures and excessive drowsiness require immediate medical attention. If you believe you or someone you love is misusing their Serzone prescription, seek professional help today. You don’t have to struggle with nefazodone addiction alone.
If you experience any extreme changes in mood or worsening depression symptoms, you should inform your doctor. If your Serzone prescription causes you to have thoughts of suicide, contact your doctor immediately. Using alcohol or other medications in addition to nefazodone is discouraged, as this may cause serious side effects.
