> I had an idea the Nardil was working for you, I've seen your other posts. I wish I was in your shoes right now. What symptoms of depression do you you suffer from, aren't you bipolar?
No Bipolar at all. I USED TO suffer from quite bad episodic depression and a plethora of anxiety disorders (Just about everyone, but OCD the most worse)
I have NO depression thanks to Nardil.
90% relief from every anxiety d/o, EXCEPT ocd, thanks to Nardil (Lithium is going to tackle the last 10%
60-70% OCD relief from Nardil Once again, (Lithium is going to kick OCD's ass into the ground) I must mention however that, in comparison to shitty SSRIs (except Luvox from anectodal reports I've read), which give 20-30% relief typically, Nardil has been good for the OCD.
I tried a lot of antipsychotics (not because of psychosis, but because of my derealization and severe phobic anxiety)
Tried Zoloft, only helped minimally
Tried Luvox - insomnia
A few others. Probably didn't give a few, including Luvox, a fair go, but I'm very happy on Nardil.
Good luck! My Nardil is definately a success story! Check out my prior posts.
and what other ADs had you tried before hitting on Nardil?
