Phenelzine/Nardil

Posted by ww7 on May 21, 2019, at 8:52:15

Hi all, my first post here.

Im looking for an up-to-date overview of all Phenelzine/Nardil brands that are currently marketed.

Living in Europe I had access to Nardelzine marketed by Pfizer. This worked wonders for me until recently Pfizer pauzed the distribution of Nardelzine (and from what I hear it is doubtful that it'll be back soon). So with no more acces to Nardelzine I had to quit cold turkey The first weeks were surprisingly ok but afterwards I crashed and life became a real struggle as it always was

So my doctor got me Nardil from the international market (the bottle I got was Canadian)
Strange enough I didn't tollerate Nardil that well, it is very hard on the stomach and I feel really sick when taking it. Very strange since I never experienced these problems with Nardelzine.

After doing some research on the subject I came across the theorie that the effectiveness of phenelzine and how well it is tolerated depends heavily on the inactive ingrediŽnts of the tablet and specifically how these ingrediŽnts affect the release-rate of the tablet. Nardil tabs presumably release faster in comparison to some other brands. I've read that back when Nardil was reformulated (2003) a lot of people found the new tabs to be much less effective and started expieriencing harsher side effects in comparison to the older formula. The phenelzine peak plasma levels with the old formula were estemated to be between 2-4h after intake, with the current formula plasma levels peak after 45minutes.

So as Nardilzine worked great for me (and so many meds don't work for me) Im determined to get my hands on Phenelzine again. There are a couple of options but the first thing I can try is finding a brand that I tolerate better.

So that brings me back to my question, what meds (brands) are currently marketed (worldwide) with the active ingrediŽnt Phenelzine?

Also, are there any Nardelzine users with the same problem?
Anyone else expierienced these differences between different brands?
Is there anyone who studied this subject more extensively and is willing to share more information on the subject?
