The U.S. FDA has issued a special warning (called a black box warning) about Serzone and liver damage. There have been cases of liver failure reported with Serzone. Some of these cases have resulted in death or the need for a liver transplant. It appears that people taking Serzone have about three to four times the risk of liver failure, compared with the general population.

Because there are so many available alternatives to Serzone for treating depression, many healthcare providers have chosen to stop prescribing Serzone altogether.
