> I know how you feel. My two weeks on Nardil hasn't been as glorious as some others on this board have made it to be. However, what keeps me going is HOPE. The fact is, MAOIs have helped thousands and thousands. That is why they are still around after 50+ years. They do work.

You have to keep in mind that "having your world rocked in a major way" is only a transient reaction. That euphoria doens't last. Eventually it goes back down to normal levels. Nardil did indeed "rock my world" that one fine day last summer when it finally kicked in (and rock my world is really an understatement of how wonderful it was), but the effect lasted only about four weeks. That's why I stopped it.

So yes, I would continue with the Nardil by all means, but just remember that when it finally kicks and you get that enormous enormous boost in self confidence and outlook, it may last a few weeks, maybe even a few months if you're lucky, but eventually the euphoria does go back down to normal levels.

When you think about it, it's not normal for anyone to stay in that sustained hypomanic state indefinitely. At least not with anything that's legal.
