Racer's idea is an interesting one. Lamictal clears the body pretty quick. Divide your doses into 50mg t.i.d. If you react REALLY badly to it, you can simply skip the next two doses and return to 50mg b.i.d. I actually think Lamictal should be taken in divided doses. If you are not doing that already, give it a try. It might smooth things out. I take 150mg as 75mg b.i.d.

Have you tried Parnate, Marplan, or Effexor? Those are the drugs one would naturally ask about given your partial response to Nardil.

Lyrica is an interesting drug. It is anxiolytic, antidepressant, and pro-social. We just don't know how persistent these benefits are yet. Despite my ultimate failure to respond continuously to it, I did have a positive reaction to it at 225mg. I am dubious that it is necessary to go up to the 600mg that others have claimed. It is probably a very safe drug in the same family as Neurontin. It is a drug that can produce some sleepiness or sedation, or even feelings of mild intoxication in the beginning (thus its status as a C IV substance), but this wears off. For me, some mild constipation and slight weight gain have been the only side effects I have encountered otherwise. You might want to keep your eye on this one.
