> 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?

After two weeks of blacking out and falling down (wish I was onto the pretzel excuse back then), and one especially unpleasant incident where I hit my head, my pdoc prescribed Florinef. It really felt weird to be a recent hypertensive taking something to raise my blood pressure!

After a few weeks I was able to wean off the Florinef and my BP stabilized at about 100/55. At that point, the weakness, staggering, and falling stopped, and I'd just have occasional fleeting dizziness upon standing up -- as I later did with Serzone.

>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.

Could be. Regardless, I think the key is to pick the right diet to go with the particular med. I can tell you that Nardil is tailor-made for the "fall down before you can get to the refrigerator" diet.
