Not all MAOIs are alike.

The reason I discontinued Parnate was because my drive and motivation were blunted and I felt somewhat numb cognitively. I did not feel happy and was emotionally flat. The sense of reward was missing. By contrast, Nardil increased interest and motivation. It brightened my mood. I was more social and engaged emotionally. I was happier and experienced reward.

My sense is that Marplan is more similar to Nardil than it is to Parnate. However, it might be less robust as a pro-social drug. For the short time that I responded to it, Marplan felt more balanced than Nardil. There was no euphoria or mania, and I was more deliberative in my decision-making process. Some people actually experience a more robust and cleaner antidepressant response to Marplan as compared to Nardil.
