> 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.

I think it's a bit warly to say much about efficacy. From my previous trials with other medicines I have learnet to be patient before saying something for sure. I just got the side effects copule of days a ago so this might be an indication that full MAO inhibition has been achieved. ANd I think you know, it's not this per se that would help but ratther the neuronal changes that occur as result of that with time. I have read that efficacy should be evaluated 4 weeks after going on the 60mg. This means 3 weeks from now.

But I must say I feel something positive coming in the horizon. Hope I wont be disppointed.

If you don't have any anxiety problems i would highly suggest Parnate or Selegiline. They are activating thought but the side effects milder than Nardil.

Take care,
