I've been on Nardil for 14 Years. I was put on it for "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder," and it worked
I constantly have to adjust and readjust the dose from 30mg to 60mg. This helps, Though I've noted a swing to a Manic state at times going up. One thing I've done that is a no-no, Is , Istarted consuming coffee about ten years
ago, very small amounts at first. Now, I consume 6 to 13 cups of strong coffee per day. For some reason, It hightens the antidepresant effects. At bed time, I take Dyphenhydromine HCI or unisome. This is all bad, But I feel I'm Addicted to this combonation and no one seems to understand. Doctors only scof at me, smile or ignore my concern altogether.
I know so much about the affects, side affects and what foods do what, That I could Write A book about nardil. I've even had doctors profess ignorants to the med in face of my broad knowledge. It's all scary when you end up knowing more about the drug your taking than the person prescribing it. I'm very serious.
My suggestion would be to expierment with the dosage over several weeks per dosage. Keep a Journal of what events are taking place in your life as opposed tyo the dosage your on. Sometimes certain events can attack our mood and we tend to want to blame anything and everything but the actual cause and most of the
time it's the medications we take. A journal will help you to see (most times in hindsight) if it's the medication or some event going on that causing you to feel one way or the other.
