> Q, hey! My memory is pathetic, but I will do my best. I used to be a musician, jazz, but I always had anxiety so I drank & took valium - started at 20, quit cold turkey when I was 30 - the valium & the music - the detox was pretty much Hell! - I am now 64 and the only relief I ever got from my Social Phobia (I have it Bad!) was about 10 or 12 years ago when I started Nardil (old version). After 6 weeks all of a sudden I just woke up a different person - I was on stage playing again & I wasn't nervous! I honestly don't even know how I got up there, I just changed - it was like a total miracle. I was on 60mg - I tried going back to 45 because of being really tired & drinking a lot of coffee in the afternoon to just be alert, but the good stuff started to disappear, so back to 60. I don't remember any other side effects. I can't even remember how long I took Nardil, 5 or 6 months maybe. I quit because of anorgasmia - I just didn't feel alive - I got my life back in one sense, but lost something that, at that time, I was not willing to let go of. I understand your saying it's a "Deal Breaker"! My desire for sex was great but erections would come & go, and it was extremely frustrating, especially since I had little trouble finding partners (new phenomena!!!) - along with being able to play music again, I seemed to become this kind of free communicator (I just said whatever I was thinking) and my life opened up to things I had never experienced as an extreme Social Phobic. I don't know what would have happened if I had kept taking it? I have two bottles of the new Pfizer stuff, but have never gotten up the courage to try it - just too much bad press out there. So now I am more depressed, anxious than when I started valium (my first med) 44 years ago - sometimes I think maybe my brain is fried after all the med trials. Nardil, hmmm? Tree

Social phobia is very debilitating as i've had since my early 20's and I'm now 61. Seems like my life has revolved around avoiding social situations. Had no idea when I was younger that a med existed that would help with that.Now at my age i don't know if i could put up with the sides plus all the bad press about the new nardil. Heard parnate is good for that also with less sides.
