I've been on Nardil since 1979, which would make it 25 years this July 2004. It literally saved my life. For the past few months, I've been on the new formula, and it seems that little by little, it's losing its effectiveness. I thought it was in my mind, til I read all these posts. I've been under some extra stress lately, so I'm not sure if it's psychological, or actually that the drug is not working as well as the earlier version. I take 30 mg. daily (2 pills), and have been fine on that dose for half of the time I've been on Nardil. For the first 12 years or so, I was on 60 mg. daily. I was able to slowly reduce the dose to 30mg. I'm not sure what's going on, but I sure hope that it's not the new formula, and is just a phase I'm going through. But I'm seriously considering increasing my dose to 45 mg. for the first time in a long time, as I'm feeling very anxious as well as shaky, even when I try to talk. I wonder if anyone else has had these symptoms? If anyone can get proof that the formula has indeed been changed to make it less effective (even if it's something in the inactive ingredients), then I think that we should file a class action suit against Pfizer. My life could literally depend on it. Also, has anyone heard of the new Selegiline Patch called EMSAM, By Somerset Pharmaceuticals, which is supposed to be approved by the FDA sometime this year? It's supposed to work similarly to Nardil, as it increases the levels of serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine in the brain, the same as Nardil, but with no food or drug interaction, since it bypasses the stomach.
