I have been taking Nardil for about 6 months and compared to all the other meds Ive taken this has worked the best.
[When I started taking 60mg the side effects were terrible. Extreme headaches(or whatever) after sleeping and getting up, seeing nothing but white, light hurt as well, dizziness. Finally, I started to drink tons of water, moved slowly, quit my nasal inhaler and it got better. I still feel the meds effects, just not as often. Also when I hit 60mg, thats when the sexual side effects worsened. Before 60 it wasnt that bad, but over time Ive gained my "strength" back. I also lost 35 pounds very quckly. Before that I had gained 70 pounds from being in a hospital and over the course of one year.]
Becuase of taking Nardil for 6 months and continued therapy with the same psychologist for over a year I have been able to go back to school and my judgment and fear of other people has gone down. I am more relaxed in public, though not very comfortable with many people in a small space. Still hard to start a friendship with either sex. Its been so long since Ive been able to actually hold a conversation, becuase I think a conversation should either be brief and straight to the point or extremely worthwhile. I am mostly afraid of the unknown, whether its friendships or responsibilty for school, work. I dont worry about tommorrow as much, now its just several months or years down the line.
This last weekend I went to a friends wedding who I hadnt seen in 10 years. I wasnt anxious, mostly excited. I didnt know anybody there except for him and his immediate family. I was able to relax though. I was happy for my friend and it was good to see his family again. I did talk with a few people. One was from Kansas and he didnt know anybody there either, instant connection without having to dig. I also talked to a girl from Houston(I live 25 minutes from downtown) who found me interesting. She noticed me when I got emotional during the wedding. She was very easy to read and I picked up several signs from her, but our conversations were off and on and I did not pursue to continue the conversations. Of course I wish I had.
Anyways, best of luck to anyone who takes Nardil. I stick to the diet like Im going to die if dont follow it exactly. I eat lots of chicken, some red meat, and sandwiches. I have been able to tolerate some chocalate, nicotine, and alcohol. Never been much of a drinker anyways, just tried to test myself a couple of times. I tend to enjoy that.
