nardil and amphetamine/no-no for me

I had a hypertensive reaction with nardil and amphetamine so, I would advise you to not combine the two or combine them very, very judiciously. It seemed to be dose dependent, but still can be a risky combination.

I'm Currently on nardil and wellbutrin xr 150 mg Q am which has helped somewhat with the Nardil sedation and ADD symptoms i have.

My pdoc will not combine Nardil with most medications with a few exceptions, Lamictal, for one.

The amphetamine was my suggestion, or experiment, as I had some left over from a previous time when I took it and I read in very small doses, i.e. 5 mg, it was considered safe. I took one dose of 7.5 mg and ended up on the bathroom floor, trying to reverse the hypertension which I effectively did by taking some Nifedipine. I had my husband on call for a trip, if necessary, to the ER, which thankfully was not required.

My suggestion to my doc to combine Nardil and Provigil was rejected. He faithfully goes by the pdr which essentially says all stimulants are contraindicated with Nardil.

I also took Nardil with Nortripyline, based on an article I had read, my doc went along with that suggestion, but it's effects for me were minimal to non-existent.

Good luck. I like the nardil/wellbutrin combo so far.
