Cool! I hope the dosing schedule will continue to minimize your Nardil-induced daytime sleepiness.

I commend you for your exercise schedule. As you know, exercise is a key component in establishing and maintaining good mental health. Further, since Nardil is notorious for causing weight gain, exercise and a healthy diet are extremely important.

Be well, my friend.

> Thanks for the great suggestion. I now split my dose 30mg around noon and 30mg in the evening. So far after two days I feel like it's putting less of a load on my system as opposed taking it all at once. I can even feel my heartbeat during/after exercise.
