Hi!

This might sound strange but I would lose the Dexedrine and raise the dose of Nardil to 90mg+

It is possible the Dexedrine is working against the Nardil.

If that doesn't work, move on to other augmenters - Pindolol, Bromocriptine, mood stabilizers, Klonopin etc. Just persist!

Good luck!

Ace.
