I'm rather old fashioned and take the Nardil pills, putting up with the dietary restrictions, which are fairly minor IMO. I'm not sure how it translates to your situation, but I had to get up to 2/3 of the maximum dose before even noticing any side effects, which took about five days or so to appear after going to that dose. After increasing the dose again, it took a similar period of time for therapeutic effects to be noticeable. I'm currently on the maximum recommended dose and am doing okay.

If you're using a patch or some similar method to administer the drug, I can see where it might be a little more iffy. There are drawbacks to pills also, which you have to remember to take, and since my doctor is also fairly conservative, he is having me take my Nardil pills throughout the day. I am happy to do so, but occasionally forget and wind up an hour or two late on some doses.
