Marplan - social phobia and well-being

Posted by GeorgeM on November 21, 1999, at 15:03:43

hello. i've been on marplan 80 mg/day for three months, now. it's been terrific for my social phobia. have not had to rely on benzodizepines once i stepped up to 80 mg/day. A very, very positive benefit has been the effect upon my mood. am much more patient, at ease, relazed, etc. around my few young children, and also at work. i really feel i'm a better person when i'm on marplan, and i'm not talking about depression - i'm must more patient, understanding, and so forth. i also suffer less from "disinhibition" than when i was on either nardil or parnate - i.e., talking out of place, being too talkative, not being as aware of social or career consequences from speaking up and taking certain unpopular positions.

In terms of side effects, i was initially a little lethargic, but 15 mg/day pindolol cured that (5 mg tid). i've had no erectile or libido difficulties, only very delayed or absent orgasm. pergolide (dopamine agonist) is supposed to work wonders for this. i'll have to be sure to speak with my psychdoc about this at next visit.

don't mean to overstress the "better person" aspects of marplan, but it was not something i experienced either with nardil, parnate, or high dose selegiline.
