>For now I'm with Nardil but would like to try a switch to Eldepryl if this keeps working so well.

I came into this thread late, but am forbidding myself to go back and review it right now because I *do* -- to answer your question -- sometimes deny myself sufficient sleep since starting Provigil.

But if you're talking about using Eldepryl (selegiline) as a replacement for Nardil for Social Phobia...I strongly recommend against it. That was a 100% absolute unmitigated disaster for me. Just *thinking* about my experience on solo selegiline gives me the shakes. Even a tiny dose that I later used to (successfully) offset slight Klonopin-induced dulling added back some anxiety. There was a study in which selegiline was tried as a primary SP treatment, based on evidence of dopamine deficiency in social phobics, and it was of no benefit. (Again, sorry if I've missed a key point of your idea by not reading the whole thread.)

P.S. Are you convinced that mixing MAOI's and Provigil is safe? I don't see why it wouldn't be, although the mfr cautions against the combo since it hasn't been studied.
