> >I went to Stanford for a consult last March and Marplan was one of the first choices recommended for my bipolar depression. Unfortunately, my doctor was afraid to prescribe it. What was so wrong with isocarboxazid, that people abandoned it for the more volatile (IMHO) phenelzine and tranylcypromine? Its back on the market now, and I wonder how it does popularity-wise.

Hi Chocoholic.

Did this doctor feel Marplan was a better drug for bipolar disorder than the other MAOIs? Did he offer any other comments regarding Marplan?

I've often heard that Marplan was considered to be a "weak" Nardil. I'm really not sure why. I have known some people who responded very well to Marplan and did not respond at all to Nardil. My previous doctor had a patient who was supplied with Marplan by the manufacturer on a compassionate use basis during the years it was off the market.

I'd be interested to know what this doctor had to say about it.
