> Thankfully, the itching now is very minimal and I believe in a couple of days it will dissipate alltogether.

That's great -- and I don't know why I didn't mention this in the last post, but if the itching ever does return, I'm sure some over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream would work just great (well, assuming hydrocortisone is OTC in Australia... I have no idea, lol). We always keep hydrocortisone cream and Benadryl itch cream around for just such an occasion. Very handy stuff to keep on hand.

> I had the same experinece with a TCA- Clomipramine. Itchy all over.

Clomipramine... that's another of the very, very few drugs I haven't tried. How was your experience with it? Sexual side effects? That's what I was most concerned with and the reason I never gave it a shot. But now that I've got my severe social phobia, agoraphobia, depression, ADD, panic, and OCD under control with Prozac, Wellbutrin XL, tramadol, clonazepam, and dextroamphetamine (without so much as a hint of a side effect, no less!) I suppose it doesn't really matter. Just curoius about clomipramine, since I came so close to trying it many times. Adding OxyContin on Monday for fibromyalgia and breakthrough depression... do you have Oxy in Australia? I'm pretty sure you've heard about it in the news due to all the hardcore abuse here in the States, but just in case I'll tell you it's a heavy-duty long-acting narcotic painkiller. Not my first choice of an antidepressant/painkiller but since nothing else helps, I'm certainly not going to complain, lol.

You're definitely quite "lucky" (if you want to call it that :-) that Nardil works so brilliantly for you. I just can't understand in the least how it can be that I took Nardil at 120mg for six months and had no effect -- I would've even been happy for a side effect! lol But I can't get over the fact that I took that high dose for so long with absolutely no change in my mental status. Truly sucks. I still wonder if I was getting the Nardil from the bad batch that was recalled last November... that could explain it. After all, my last prescription was filled in the beginning of November, and the recall occurred in mid-November. I wonder if there's any way at all to find out if the Nardil my local pharmacy was carrying at the time was the "sub-potent" stuff that was recalled. If so, I must say that really ticks me off. I was just SO sure the Nardil would work when I tried it... oh well. :-\

>And a lump appeared on a certain body part I will not mention!!!

lol, that's a new one! I hope it's gone away by now, lol.
