I like magnesium citrate - nice calming effect. Passiflora and valerian ya these are decent sedatives but not knock outs for me. I find scullcap better in that regard or niacinimide.
I have tried a handful of other meds prior to nardil with a very limited success. Effexor came out "ok" in the beginning...but it mostly dulled my emotions....I would still get anxiety but I would have this attitude of ah who cares...you know you get stressed out over a project or exam in univ then effexor would say who gives a sh*t. Raising the dose to 150mg+ introduced me to new heights of anxiety I havent felt in awhile. Quit that one after about a year and a bit....was only on it after awhile to make my dr happy as she was insistant it would work and I had no real alternatives. Then another dr pulled me off it when rediagnosed as SAD\GAD.
Switching to another more commonly/dr "friendly" med is a likely possibility. I have a good 4-8 month wait for a MAOI pdoc ive been talking to. So mabye ditch my gp (only dr I know who will give me nardil)...then get another gp for something like mabye zoloft i dunno yet...wait it out then go back to maois when the pdoc appointments finally come around.
