PLEASE HELP!! (Highest Marplan/MAOI doses)

Posted by matt66 on May 22, 2004, at 9:24:12

I've been on Marplan for about three months, and after five years of trials, it has been the only drug to work for me. So I'm staying on it regardless. I've tried all the other MAOI's multiple times and none have been able to keep me stable. I'm a 200lb 23 year old male, if that helps. My current doc says the PDR high dose of Marplan is 60mg, however, he and I have never been ones to put much weight in the PDR. I've tried enormous doses of other meds without any severe side effects (no positive effects either), and I currently tolerate 60mg of Marplan in the morning very well (no real side effects). I've been on 120mg of Nardil (PDR says Nardil tops out at 90mg, I believe) more than once and it didn't work, but no harm done either. So how high have either you, or someone you have heard of taken the Marplan? 60mg definately doing something, but two months ago I was on just 20mg, and was much more active, sociable, relaxed, creative, and at peace. Since then, I've fallen a bit, but moving the dose to thirty and then forty both made a significant difference. I've been on six for five days, and still can't feel any difference. Going from thirty mg's to forty mg's and then forty to fiftymg both made a significant difference virtually overnight.

Thank you!
ps- do you think spreading the dose (30mg in the morning and 30mg at night would make a difference? (i feel the same all day and night right's not like i have good mornings and poor afternoons, so I don't THINK this would make a difference, but you never know...
