I started on 15mg per day. I was up to 45mg when my problems became uncomfortable.This was 8 weeks after commencement.
I'm currently taking 37.5mg daily, although this will have slight variations depending on how accurately I cut the tablets.I have been taking nardil for almost 16 weeks now.
I'm almost sure I require the 45mgs as I had absolutely no feelings of "could be better" on that dose. I do hope it was not due to being chemically driven and lacking insight re being "high". My close friends were aware of my anxieties and promised they would comment if they thought I was showing signs of being too high.(something I have never been). However, my own anxieties re feeling a little out of control caused me to take action before anyone said anything to me. They all said they didn't think there was any problem.On reflecton I maybe acted too quickly. maybe it was a phase which would have passed, but as I work in psychiatry I wasn't prepared to be observed as "high".I usually mamnge to hide my true level of mood unless it is so bad I have to be off sick.
I have to find a way of taking a large enough dose to achieve the mood and motivational benefits without the sensation of loosing self control.Hence my idea of alternate days etc.
Hope this is what you wanted to know.
