There is a pill one can carry around which will abort a hypertensive crisis due to Nardil and tyramine. However, I have forgotten the name of the pill.
I think the real danger with nardil is trying to enhance the effectiveness of Nardil. There are various ways one can attempt to do this. I thought Nardil was great then it conked out and I tried foolishly to boost the action of Nardil via various means and Nardil reacts with a lot of drugs. This was a big mistake as there were a lot of side-effects.
Basically Naridl is a stand alone AD. One avoids OTC medications as much as possible with Nardil. That said except for hypotension it is fairly safe and the risk of a hypertensive crisis is small and there is the pill one can carry around to abort a hypertensive crisis.
I think it is the best AD. Nardil is the only AD one can fall in love with.
