Good on you for having the medalert bracelet! I'm forever telling dentists 'NO epinephrine!!!' (they have another novocain that doesn't contain it...)

I'm quite accustomed to the restrictions. However, after a bit, I dropped from 60mg (which was too much for me - plunged me back into a crying state/depression) to 45 mg... then eventually, (for years now) 30 mg. I eat cheese, ham, bacon, coffee (no booze at all, because I choose not to drink) and everything I want. Once you're stabilized and have been taking it for awhile, and are maybe on a lower dosage, you may not have to deal with all the restrictions. (BUT! I'm NOT a professional, and am NOT recommending this.) I just had pizza one day without thinking about it, about a year after I started Nardil, and it was fine.

gardenergirl: I'm doing better on the new stuff, too, although I note edema and sleepiness. I'm glad to hear you're doing okay! Haven't had a panic attack again since the 'transition time' (about 20 days after I started the new version) when I felt like I was actually withdrawing from the old. Sharing this because if it happens to others, I want to offer my reassurance that it will pass. :D


If you're in Canada, or outside the U.S. you may just be lucky enough to be able to continue to take the 'old' version. I've heard others on the board here say that this is predominantly a U.S. problem...

Nice thing about Nardil, for me, when I first started, was that it almost IMMEDIATELY took care of my panic attacks. Like, the first day or two. :D

That's nice.

Warmly, to both of you -
