> > Thanks. As an aside, have you ever taken Parnate or Nardil? If so, how would you compare all of them? They're all meds that I'm considering right now. I think I'm leaning towards Marplan to try first (if I don't try Cymbalta before that) but there's a lot less info on it out there than of the other two. I wonder why it isn't used more? Have you been on it long? Have you had much success with it?

I've been on it since about February. I've had moderate success on it. I just saw a new pdoc, and we're going to raise my dosage from 40 mg. to 50 or 60 mg. before giving up on it. I found I needed to augment w/ thyroid hormone to get much effect from it.

That was my thinking - that it might be good for me now because it's between Nardil and Parnate in side effect profile. I'll be curious to see what happens when you increase your dosage. I hope it works for you.

Thanks again,
Kara
