I added a TCA after reading about the safety of it in a journal called "Current Psychiatry, Vol. 1/June 2002". I gave my pdoc a copy of it. Also I know SLS was taking a TCA with Nardil.
Here's the link:
Hope that works so you can read the article.
I have tried 60 mg of Nardil but got extremely light headed with BP as low as 70/40 and also had severe GI slowing with severe gas and Constipation , so I had to reduce the dosage to 45 which I now take. The 30 was my reaction to the hypertensive episode, which scared me to death (my pdoc too!).
I was on Nardil 15 mg twice a day in 1989 (the original formula) until it stopped working for me. In retrospect, the dosage was very low and should have been raised but instead I was started on Prozac, the newly released wonder drug.
I also took Marplan with great success in 1991 until 1994 until Roche discontinued it since it was losing sales after Prozac and other newer drugs were released.
What time do you take the Nardil? DO you split the dosage of 90 or take it once a day.
As far as the poster is saying about the reformulation of Nardil in 2004, I believe it doesn't work like the original since the pill coating breaks down more easily than the original thus affecting absorption times.
Great chatting with you and glad to hear you're up and running again.
