I envy your elation, Ace. Hopefully, my time will come soon.
I do think it is important to monitor liver function as Nardil can be a burden on it. Hopefully, your doctor will know what tests are necesssary. I imagine a full liver enzyme screening would be enough.
Are you having a problem with your supply of Nardil? What's the story? Is Marplan available down under? Although it is a member of the hydrazine class, as is Nardil, it is much less taxing on the liver. Although Marplan is often described as being a "weaker Nardil", when the drug works, it can produce just as robust a response as Nardil for depression. I have no idea how it compares for OCD however.
Besides SSRIs, MAOIs, and Anafranil, what other drugs are used for treating OCD?
