I would like to know if Serzone causes phlegm buildup? Or if someone had a dental procedure (root canal) would that effect my sinus's? and would that play into the fact that certain medications also play a part into it?

  • The antidepressant Serzone has been removed from the market; it causes decreased liver function. If you're still taking it, check with your pharmacist. I've tried several antidepressants in the last 10 years and I don't recall phlegm or muscous side effects. Hope you find an answer. Good luck.

  • Root canals can affect sinus, both ways. A infected root can actually cause a sinus infection and a sinus infection can actually cause an infected root. Many people's root go into their sinus cavities. I personally have this and will not do any dental work when dealing with a cold or sinus infection due to fear of complications. Check with your Dentist or ENT doctor.
