> Thanks Scott for the info. I would add more, but when I have done so it makes my anxiety worse, something Nardil had always helped in the past.

That's disappointing to hear. Nothing is ever easy when it comes to psychotropics.

> I think it is breaking down too soon or late in the digestive system, one of my theories.

Maybe Larry or Chemist have some idea as to what's going on.

> I would like to try Marplan but have not heard many comments from anyone about it as a substitute for Nardil.

Apparently, not too many people use it. They are chemically related, though. However, that doesn't always guarantee similarity in clinical effect. Dr. Terrence Ketter at Stanford really likes Marplan. I understand he tends to use it before Nardil. I think his main reason is that Marplan is more tolerable with regards to side effects. He must feel it is reasonably effective, or he wouldn't bother with it. If Nardil isn't working, I guess you really have nothing to lose. I have seen at least one person here report Marplan being effective for them when Nardil was not.

Is depression your main complaint, or anxiety?
