Re: COMPAINTS REGARDING NEW NARDIL Spotcheck

David, don't get too discouraged about the dysphoric lady in Scotland, as I think you've provided an absolutely invaluable service with all the information you've provided on this Nardil issue. I think there's no question you're correct as to Pfizer/Parke-Davis losing the ability to make the old formulation properly and being forced to reformulate it into the current version, which is unfortunately less effective for so many patients.

I'm a little surprised Suzy's doctor was not aware of the relationship between MAOIs and blood pressure, as hypotension has been recognized as a common side effect of MAOIs for decades, as well as reduced heart rate. I have essential hypertension myself (barely, at 140/90), and I'm seeing enough of a reduction in BP on the 75 mg/day of the Nardil I'm on so that I've cut my lisinopril BP med from 10 to 5 mg to observe whether I can get away with dropping it entirely. As I mentioned in another post elsewhere on the board, my heart rate has also declined significantly, from about 75 to 60 beats/minute.

I have not yet achieved the full antidepressant response I'm looking for, but the results so far give me hope that I may be one of the fortunate ones for whom the med still proves to be a blessing. Thanks again for all your efforts in clarifying what is going on.

Todd
