> Hey there,
> I had a great experience with starting Nardil.
> From the first day I took 15mg my anxiety was almost gone (I was still anxious in more intimidating situations, but I could easily get through it and I was very happy with where my SA was at). I experienced the typical symptoms of light headedness, weight gain, constipation, tiredness, but all of which decreased as my body got used to it.
> This lasted for about 3 weeks (during which I went from 15mg to 30mg) before it pooped out.

This is what happened with me almost exactly. Felt better but then boom, it pooped out pretty early on. Nardil reputedly has a period of potential euphoria, which I believe I experienced mildly.

> I am now taking 45mg (I weigh 50kg) and it hasn't really worked since, so I'm wondering if I should continue with the 45mg for a month or so (my psychiatrist mentioned that it affects the GABA system and some people respond to it very early due to that, so perhaps it hasn't truly kicked in for me.. if that makes sense? just speculating here).
> Or I stop for a while and start back at 15mg.
> Any opinions/experiences appreciated!

Very hard call. I'd head as high as you can to therapeutic dose (60-75mg) and hold there if you can. I couldn't tolerate it even though I tried desperately. If that doesn't work out you can then go back down in dose.

One diet tip: definitely avoid draft beer. I drank 1/2 a pint and went into hypertensive crisis. Not recommended.

I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
