For social anxiety Nardil is amazing. The biggest problem w/ Nardil for me was the weight gain :/ If you have low self-esteem/self-loathing and can't afford to gain a few ponds I'd probably recommend trying Parnate first.

I was one of the unfortunate people who has blood pressure issues w/ Parnate spontaneously (not due to taking something contradicted). Once I got to 40mg my BP would elevate after every dose.

I take Marplan now. I'd been successful on that from 2010 through 2017 when the only company that makes it botched their ability to manufacture it. After a year of being unavailable they're currently importing a supply from Denmark for the few of us who take it. It's supposed to be widely available by the end of the year. It's milder than Nardil but for those of us it works for it really does work. It seems to be effective for people w/ depersonalization issues.

So yea while Nardil is probably the better choice "feeling" wise I'd recommend trying Parnate first. Just cause the weight gain usually turns out to be a deal breaker for many people. I even tried to offset it by taking Metformin+exercising and still gained 15lbs in the year I was on it.
