Nardil not kicking in... how long should I wait?

Posted by bbb1993 on September 29, 2017, at 4:23:45

Hey there,

So I started taking Nardil 04/08 on 15mg and went up to 30mg around a week later. I stayed on this low dose until around 28/08 when I went up to 45mg. I stayed on a low dose for longer than usual since it was working amazing for my SA from the first day I took 15mg. My SA was went from 8/10 to 1-3/10 and I was really happy with that, but with hindsight I was maybe just feeling an initial stimulating effect and not the true effects.

This gradually stopped by 02/09 and since then I have been on 45mg (2x morning, 1x afternoon). Today is the first day I took 52.5mg (29/09). The reason for my slow titration is that I am having extreme somnolence and struggle to stay awake past 2pm, it's bad timing as I'm in uni and will be starting my exam period soon.

I know most people recommend 60mg (my psychiatrist recommended 45mg or more according to my weight 52kg) however taking into account my extreme sleepiness, I don't think I will be able to increase more than 52.5mg for the moment. I am also very sensitive to any medication and usually need less than most people.. though not sure that would make a difference with Nardil.

I've been on Nardil for just shy of 2 months now. I'm hoping I'm not wasting my time on 52.5mg, if it does kick in, how much longer do you think it will take?
