You have an enlightened doctor.
You might need to be patient with Nardil, especially if you have been on and off another MAOI. With a little luck, you'll feel improved at 60mg. I would give this dosage three weeks to show results before increasing it. The faster you titrate the dosage of Nardil, the more likely you are of developing persistent side effects. This has been my experience.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
