In brief: An Antidepressant

Nefazadone (brand serzone) is an antidepressant closely related to trazodone.
This is a potent 5-ht2a antagonist. Due to low affinities to other neurotransmitters it has fewer side effects. Unfortunately it was discontinued in many countries due to acute liver failure. Bristol-myers-squibb discontinued it in 2004. There are generic forms available in the us.
