Yeah i really think 14 days is too long too, depending i guess on how long has been on an MAOI. But i would say that going from Nardil to Parnate or selegeline requires more caution than going from one of those to Nardil.

> They say 14 days. Too much IMO. I switched to Parnate 1 day after Nardil and then the next day back to Nardil!
> Then after 2 weeks 4 days I switched, after a 50 hour washout, to Nardil again. No probs at all.
> Too be safe, and this is if your not suffering greatly at the moment, I'd give it 7 days. I say this because I've read of a person having a stroke when switching between Parnate and Nardil without 7 days washout. But both times I switched I was suffering greatly- this suffering necissitated a quick switch.
> Good luck!
> Ace.
