Hi CK1,
Congratulations on your choice to skip the 25 other trials and go to the gold standard for social anxiety and atypical depression. I went through the SSRIs, TCAs, atypicals, etc. and many combinations of each. This took a good three to four years of my life away and set me back socially and financially.
Chances are good that you will have some side effects, but these are nothing compared to treatment resistant depression and SAD.
You may go through a period of hypomania. This condition is very euphoric for a person that has been seriously depressed. Keep a close eye on it and try not to make major life changes while in this phase. The hypomania will pass and it may feel like the med is pooping out. However, this is not the true therapeautic effect.
Nardil has worked long term for me. Every time I have come off of it, I became seriously depressed within a few months. I am a lifer! I will augment with other meds but Nardil is the rock.
The two worst side effects for me have been weight gain and delayed orgasm. As a young man, your testosterone level will probably be high enough to counteract the sexual side effects. The only thing I've found that works for the weight gain and carbohydrate cravings is lots of exersise. Good luck and watch the tyramine.
