> I really don't know how you people manage to do it. I tried Nardil at 75mg for about a month and the hypotension was so bad I was blacking out several times a day. It felt like a puppet that had it's strings randomly cut, I fell down so many times. The hypotension is starting to come back a little at 60 mg and the social phobia is starting to increase. May I'm just not cut out for Nardil but everything else is useless.
Let's face it ALL MAOI's have mega side effects. I have never heard of or met one person who was on Nardil or Parnate (Two of the most effective MAOI's which are both power house AD's) that didn't have very troubling side effects, i.e. insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, hypotension, dizziness, night jerks, ears ringing, and many more. They are so effective for depression, anxiety, social anxiety, but who can live with the side effects. I tried but couldn't!
