Thanks for your response. I'm taking Nardil 15mg right now, moving to 30mg next week. I'm short/thin and tend to be affected strongly by medications. I'm not taking anything else except loratadine, which dr (and drugs.com) said is okay... anyone had bad experiences with that mix? I also have xanax prn but havent taken it since starting Nardil.
For the last 2-3 years, I've felt like my heart rhytym was slightly uneven at times.. slowing/speeding up, etc.. I've had 2 EKGs and they say everything is fine. I havent noticed that in particular since beginning this drug though.
Today is somewhat better. My heart rate has been 95-100 all day. BP has averaged about 105/65. My normal BP is slightly lower, but I'm obviosuly not worried about 105/65. Today I have felt very "spacy" and "drugged" though, which I didnt feel yesterday. I'm hopeful pdoc was right and this heart rate increase will work itself out. We'll see what tomorrow brings...
