I can't tell you how much I envy the fact that your "Big O" Seratonin receptor hasn't been switched off by Nardil! You should really consider yourself fortunate in that respect!

As Imentioned in my other post, I am literally NUMB from the waist down on Nardil - not just sexually. Takes me at least 20 minutes in the bathroom and then I have to (trying to put this delicately) *visually* check to make sure I've completed any biological functions - no sensation at all. The Nardil works so damn well for my depression, I keep going back to it and putting up with this other misery for awhile; but it always chases me away eventually in search of another med when I can't stand the side effectst any longer.

Since this isn't one of your side effects, I guess I can't ask you if there is any way to counteract this - ginkgo or something. Maybe someone else out there has experienced this phenomenon and has a suggestion.

As for Parnate, could you explain what you mean by spontaneous hypertention? I've been very susceptible to the 'jitters' caused by some other AD's (Wellbutrin almost did me in!) and I don't like the sound of this. Also, does Parnate cause the same lowered blood pressure 'woosies' as Nardil when you stand up too quickly?

What have you heard about Marplan - do you think it might provide a "happy medium" between Nardil and Parnate?

Any suggestions you or others may have will be gratefully appreciated.
