I don't take an MAOI now, but I used to take Marplan. I don't recall any light-headedbess from the Marplan, and I've always experienced some. It's gotten worse as I've gotten older. I was taking 0.1 mg fludrocortisone, but when I was in the hospital last year they put me on 0.2 mg. I was having ECT at the time, and they may have raised the dose because of how I reacted to the anesthesia. (That's just a guess.) My BP is still low, but I don't usually start to black out under normal conditions.

I've heard that light-headedness when going to the bathroom in the middle of the night can be quite dangerous, because you can't see very well and you can fall. I hang onto the bedstead until it passes.

Good luck,
