> Hi, Scott. Have taken both Nadil (60 mg/day) and Parnate (40 up to 90 mg/day) for social phobia. Recently took Marplan 60 mg/day. I stopped the Marplan because I did not notice any significant efficacy for social phobia, and it did cause anorgasmia. Bupropion adjunctive therpay may have addressed this - I just didn't give it a try.

You have to trust me on this one. It goes away. You just have to keep trying. Eventually, it will come.

> HOWEVER, you should note that I noticed a significant mood enhancing effect on Marplan which I have never noticed on any other drug, whether SSRI, SNRI, MAOI, benzo, etc.

Thanks. That sounds very encouraging.

I just spoke to my doctor yesterday, and he described a patient with a similar story.

Do you have problems with concentration, memory, and energy. If so, how did these symptoms respond to Marplan?

Did you feel smarter?

> I was much more tolerant, patient, easy going, etc. Probably the experienced the best relationships with my children for some time.

God bless.

> I may later go back to Marplan, and see if there's some chance to offset the anorgasmia, again, with something like Bupropion or a dopamine agonist.

No guarantees of course, but hopefully the anorgasmia will disappear as it has for me with MAOIs in the past.

> Best of luck.
