I had been taking Prozac the better part of 10 years and finally decided to stop due to the poop out factor and try Nardil. I was aware of the 5 week washout period, but because my unipolar depression had gotten so brutal, out of desperation, I took a chance and started Nardil after 3 weeks. Fortunately, I did not have any bad reactions, but as everyone knows everyone reacts differently.

My depression seemed to be in check but because of severe insomnia, I had to reduce my Nardil from 60 to 30mgs and although I am now able to get at least 5 hours continuous sleep, my depression seems to have returned. I will cautiously increase my dosage back up to 45mg then 60mg, and hope that my depression lifts. I am taking Ambien for the insomnia.

> Yes, pretty freakin scary but the absolute safest way to switch from ssri's and the like over to the maois. especially Prozac! your doc is not just covering her butt, but also has your health/safety in mind...you can do it though so good luck and try to remember the goal you are shooting for! 5 weeks is a long time but will probably go faster than you realize!
