I am actually trying to lose weight. I need to lose maybe 20 pounds and I am finding it very hard to do without any meds. So taking Nardil as an MAOI seems a less than ideal choice for me!

Is it worth me going back to my psych-doc and asking her to start me on Parnate rather than Nardil?

But I don't want to try Parnate if it is less likely to be effective than Nardil. Can anyone comment on this please?

Also are there any other differences between Nardil and Parnate which I should know about?
