> Nardil turned me from (untreated) hypertensive to hypotensive within days. The postural hypotension was so bad that I was falling down, including in public.

A big change in baseline BP will do that. I had a couple of fainting spells when I first started taking Nardil. I got used to it after a little while, though. Did you continue having this problem, or did it get better for you too?

> We both seem to be in a distinct minority on this one. I actually found it *easier* to lose weight when I was on Nardil, and I didn't really cut out many foods due to the cheese effect

Lucky! I've heard that men are less likely to gain weight on Nardil than women are, although I suspect this perception might result from women being more likely to report this side effect.
