I have been taking Nardil over 6 weeks and switched from Prozac after taking it for over 7 years. The ideal washout period for Nardil from an SSRI, like Prozac, is 5 weeks. However, my unipolar depression became so brutal after only 3 weeks, I took a chance out of desperation at only 3 weeks. Fortunately, I had no side effects. As far as libido is concerned, surprisingly, for me it was business as usual. As far as the effectiveness of Nardil, it seemed to lift my depression very well but the insomnia SE has been brutal. With my pdocs blessings, I reduced my dosage by one half. Although I am able to sleep at least 5 continuous hours now, on half my dose, my depression has returned. I will slowly increase it again and probably will take something for sleep to curve my insomnia.
