Nardil plus Aplenzin

Posted by jch on October 3, 2011, at 18:41:27

I have been taking ADs for over 35 years. The most effective was Marplan, which I took in the mid 80's; until my doc died. Tried multiple alternatives and combinations for about 10 years, as noone would try an MAOI. Had limited success. Finally found a psychopharmacologist, who after hearing my history said "Let's try an MAOI". I nearly cried, however Marplan was no longer available, so I tried Nardil. 60mg with 10mgs of Ritalin got me through some of the worst experiences in my life.
Then about 4 1/2 years ago my wellbeing sarted to fade, then plummeted. Have tried new Marplan and Parnate, with either no effect or bad effects. I have been in bed for most of the last three 1/2 years.
I have not been honest with my doc fearing that there was no answer to my dilemma.
Finally I weaned myself off Nardil, thinking that it was doing nothing; I spent days crying non stop. Returned to Nardil and started looking for answers. Found a number of suggested adjuncts,(many on this site) and as I had taken Wellbutrin for a year or so, with some success and no memorable side effects, I suggested this to my doc. I took with me a copy
of a paper c.2002, advising the effecacy of this combination. He read thru it, thought for a while and suggested we try Aplenzin. Started today 174mgs with 45 mgs Nardil. Wish me luck and I will report back.

I got a lot of information from this site. I was so relieved to find that my most recent reaction to Nardil was not mine alone and that there were options to try. Thank you all.
