At one time or another, I have been on every anti-depressant except atypical anti-psychotics or MAO Inhibitors. Seemed like I was on a different drug every two months. I never had any adverse effects except the meds didn't work. The Serzone made me see a haze around everything including trees and cars when I drove. Funky. So it didn't matter which drug I took, never got sick, just manic.
That's my story, been on psych meds 43 years... fun stuff.
Peace, hope you do okay,
