Well...Things have gone slightly wrong. I've been having problems with a side effect. A nasty one. Urine retention. Thought I was prepared for it but no. I have had to reduce from 45mg to 30mg. I can feel the loss of efficiency but can pee again lol.

I remember vividly last time I started Nardil back in 2004. I hit 60mg in 5 weeks and felt great! But within a month after that it started. Couldn't 'go' no matter how long I stood there. I took myself to hospital, along with my swollen belly. They fitted a catheter without hesitation. I refused to lower the dose so lived with the catheter for about 5 weeks. When they took it out I could pee normally. YAY!

This time I do not want a catheter! I will increase very slowly. A full week on 30mg. Then 2 weeks on 30 one day, 45 the next. Then up to 45mg every day for at least 2 weeks. See how I go from there.

I have type 1 diabetes and have been told I am more prone to such side effects. DAMMIT!

So all I can do is see how things go.
