Marplan benefits?

Posted by Annie on May 27, 1999, at 14:12:18

(If multiples of this post appear, I apologize. I got an "unspecified" error message that said try again, The last time I did that, it posted twice).
Since the initial announcement that Marplan would again be available in the U.S., I have seen many posts here and elsewhere registering emotions from relief to excitement. I am not familiar with this drug. What is the reason for all the optimism? Is the side effect profile more benign than Parnate or Nardil? Does it have a higher effective rate? Does it kick in more quickly? The selegiline study I've been participating in is almost over and an MAOI is the logical next trial. Like Elizabeth, I experienced a spontaneous hypertensive crisis on Parnate. I read with relief that more gradual dose increases were effective but mine occurred after only three days at 10mg. I want to explore any alternatives. I have already tried Nardil.
Thanks, Annie
