Dear Stephanie,

This is a repeat of my post in the above thread. I just wanted to make sure you saw it.

> Shellie: I had Nardil poop out 5 years ago, after being on the drug 11 years. I tried many new meds and med combinations, but it wasn't until I put Nardil, Wellbutrin, Vivactil, dexedrine and yohimbe together that I started to get better. (I had figured out in the meantime that Nardil was still doing some small good). I take a very small dose of yobimbe, since it has potential interactions with Nardil. I've had no problems with it, and for me it is stimulating --- a good thing. Also- Vivactil is a tricyclic, but it affects me much differently than the other ones I tried (amitriptyline and despramine. ) They knocked me out and I was sleeping l8 hours a day, even a month into the trial. In contrast, I find Vicactil (protriptyline) to be energizing. ..I hope you find what you need.


I am very interested to know in what way yohimbine has helped you. How much are you taking, and when do you take it?

How would you describe the importance of yohimbine in your treatment? How would you describe how it has benefited you? What did you feel?

I recently started a combination of Parnate and desipramine. I was desperate, and things were getting dangerous. This combination was the only thing ever to work for me thirteen years ago. Unfortunately, my doctor at the time decided to discontinue it, and it has never worked since. This time, I am taking Lamictal 300mg along with it. If this combo proves partially effective, I would consider adding yohimbine to it.

Stephanie, hopefully, you will have no need of stimulants. My doctor had no problem with the idea of combining reboxetine with Nardil. I would have tried it had I not reacted badly to the reboxetine alone. What are your reasons for wanting to try reboxetine? Are you dissatisfied with the way you are currently feeling? Are you going to add it to everything you are already taking?

Are you waiting for reboxetine to be approved in the U.S. before trying it?

In what order did you add your medications to Nardil?

With each addition, how did it affect you?

Have you tried any of the dopaminergic anti-Parkinson's drugs?
Parlodel (bromocryptine)
Mirapex (pramipexole)
Permax (pergolide)

I experienced a brief improvement with Parlodel while taking Parnate. A research clinician recently suggested that I try Mirapex.

I hope everything works out.

Thanks for any input you can give me.

- Scott
