Re: nardil/maoi -- mood stabilizer add-on?

Any Name,
Though I haven't tried MAOIs, I can definitely sympathize with what you and John have to say about the difficulty of holding at a stable dosage... But your account leads me to wonder: if your Nardil tends to need frequent adjusting, and if you have a susceptibility to (hypo-)mania at dosages that "work", might it not be worthwhile to consider a mood stabilizer as an adjunct? I know that polypharmacy can open up a whole new can of worms, but perhaps it could help smooth some of those problems out a bit. (And perhaps there are ones other than Lithium that might be equally combinable with an MAOI--not sure on this though...)
Best to you,
>>> One thing I do have to watch for is that it did make me very manic, especially the first years. I went around just spending all my money, etc... But it has not pooped out on me... and it has been nearly 10 years now. Do keep in touch. It is so helpful
