I have a lifetime of the same symptoms as you. First med that worked for me was Nardil (the old version) in 1987. All the other meds tried after that failed to really provide relief and I recently came back to Nardil last year, and I'm still on it. Unfortunately, low dose Nardil only worked in the early (pre-2003) version.

Currently on 45-60 mg., which might seem low to others on it, but like you always very med sensitive. Don't push it too fast, may have to give it 6 mos, I did. had hypotension, gas, weight gain (still do) abd swollen ankles. I hadno side effects withthe original Nardil just pure and utter relief, until my crazy doc took me off it.

Only other successful combo for me was Celexa, Adderall and Wellbutrin. I believe the Adderall was key and I still think the Nardil is not all that it should be.

I am currently exploring a large ADD component to my depression that my doctor has never fully addressed and being on Nardil, you can't really combine the stims with Nardil, although I cheat with tiny doses with good results.

But Nardil or Celexa were the only meds that gave me more than a year of life back, out of the 20+ years with these symptoms.

Good luck with you appointment and choice for next med.
