Amantadine w/ Nardil

Posted by Questionmark on May 25, 2004, at 7:13:41

i'm on 60mg Nardil, and the anorgasmia is a b**ch-- as are the anticholinergic side effects (to which i seem to be quite sensitive). i was recently prescribed amantadine (Symmetril) for the former side effect. i was also in the process of raising my Nardil dose, however, so i did not want to start the amantadine consistently until that balanced out. But i have taken it several times or so at seperate periods, and, though i'm not yet sure how it would help with the anorgasmia (since i didn't have any opportunities to test it after taking it), it seemed to make my anticholinergic symptoms even worse. My doctor told me that the anticholinergic effects of amantadine would be negligible and less than Nardil's, but i'm now wondering if he just said that so as to prevent me from psychologically convincing myself of the opposite. i cannot deal with a greater severity of increased anticholinergic symptoms.

So, without further rambling, is anyone knowledgeable with amantadine and the severity of its anticholinergic effects, and how much it might help with anorgasmia, sexual funtion, SP/SAD, depression, cognitive function, energy levels, and /or motivation? If you could provide me with some input i'd be very appreciative. Thanks.
