I typed "Nardil" into Google, and found the explanation for the
deterioration in the clinical performance of the drug( nardil , which had been available prior to take over of Parke- Davis by Pfizer in early 2000's. There is a group called " Nardil Problems Activism".
The site gives a list of Contents of Old Vs. New Formulation of Nardil.
Basically it seems to get back to big business farming off to an ill-equipped manufacturer the production of Nardil which was never a big money spinner for the wealthy drug manufacturing company.
No decent studies were done to test the clinical efficacy of the altered ,cheaper formulation of Nardil.
The sad part about it is that most of the medical profession is not aware of the change in formulation.
Some physicians believe that " inert" ingredients should not alter a medication's behaviour.
WE ARE LIVING PROOF THAT IT CAN.
If you are unable to access the Nardil problems site, I would be happy to talk some more about it.
