You really need to be back on the Nardil, but it is not going to work overnight. You sound like you are in such pain. Most people on this board know exactly where you are coming from. When I was really, really sick my PDOC at the time added a fairly high dose of clonazepam, just for the time it took for several trials and eventual success with Nardil. It can take the edge off of the anxiety, especially someone that suffers from social anxiety disorder. When the Nardil started to work, the clonazepam was reduced to 1 or 2 mg. I know you don't like the drugged feeling, but it beats dying.
You mention loss of appetite. This is not a sympton of atypical depression; for which Nardil is the gold standard. For melancholy depression, sometimes the tricyclics work better. Maybe something like nortriptyline with clonazepam for the social anxiety. Just a thought.
Please be Well.
