I completely agree with what Scott has to say and would take it to heart, particularly given his extensive personal experience with the drug--I have only taken Nardil myself out of the MAOIs. I also feel that 40 mg/day is more or less the minimum to gain some understanding of the effectiveness of the drug, and it should be the goal from the beginning of treatment to attain this dosage.

I recently had an appointment with my pdoc and we decided to go beyond the standard maximum of Nardil at 90 mg/day and up to 105 mg/day. It took over a week, but I am beginning to notice a substantial improvement. In terms of the dosage scheme they talk about in one of the articles, I am now at about 1.5 mg/day per kilogram of body weight--this is 50 % beyond what they recommend. However, I will say that I did have therapeutic effects at 1.0 mg/kg body weight per day (75 mg/day); it's just that my mood and outlook are quite a bit more positive at the higher dosage.
