Hi, I'm too disappointed that so many meds, such as Moclobemide and Viloxazine aren't offered in the U.S. It's a very, very expensive process, and I suppose many companies simply give up. This is why so many meds useful in treating social phobia are not FDA approved for that purpose. Entails separate Stage I, II, and III clinical trials, plus post-introduction follow-up of side effects. Who wants to do that when they have a drug which works and which psychopharmacologists are willing to prescribe? Can you imagine Nardil being even more popular with the socially phobic crowd if it got FDA approval for this use? I doubt it.
Anyway, as far as Viloxazine, my psychdoc and I were evaluating it as a possible antitode to Nardil induced loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, and anorgasmia. I called on all the pharmacies around here (Michigan), and none have records of its being available. How unfortunate, Amantadine works better on the carbohydrate cravings and weight gain from Nardil, and Viloxazine seems like the ticket for the sexual dysfunction.
