medication that is only available in the United States only by prescription.

Rather than banning the medication, the FDA has
issued warnings informing the public that Serzone has been linked to serious
liver damage, resulting in the need for liver transplants and other medical
complications. The potential Serzone side effects are so severe that sales of
the medication have been discontinued in Canada as on of November 27, 2003.

been instructed by the FDA to warn their patients of the potential risk of liver
damage associated with Serzone.
If you take Serzone, you may be at risk for
serious liver damage or worse, liver failure. Talk to your doctor about being
tested to determine whether Serzone is the appropriate antidepressant for you.
