I don't notice reduced efficacy coinciding with the side effects going away. I also get urinary retention, altough that goes away faster than anorgasmia. And Scott's estimate of 2-3 months might be more accurate. But I'm afraid that going to 75 mg might indeed bring out that SE again, sorry to say.

With Nardil, it's always been a cost/benefit thing for me between the SE's and the relief from depression. It's finally getting to the point where the weight gain might be getting too much for my self esteem and my overall health as compared to the benefits I get in depression relief. I started Topamax to try to counter that, but if it doesn't help, I will switch from Nardil to Parnate. If that doesn't work, well....not sure. In my case the anorgasmia is not as big of a cost to pay as it seems to be for others. But that could be because there are other issues with that I don't need to go into here.

How is it doing for you with relief of symptoms?
