> Nardil 60mg causes me insomnia. I have tried 55 mg, 50 mg, 45 mg with a return of the depression. I now add in low dose lithium and lamictal and tapered down nardil to 50 mg. Benzo make me sedated in the morning not able to think clearly at work. Ambien last 4 hours so I take half at bedtime and half at two am. That is still not enough, so I eat 12 slices of bread to induce sleep. Because of that, I can on eat small meals during the. Day and Im afraid this bread eating will give me diabetes. Trazadome reverses Nardil and makes me feel depressed. I have tried several other things for the insomnia over the 20 years, but no luck!

Have you tried very low dose Seroquel? I take Nardil (60 but have been as high as 90) and 25mg of Seroquel has always put me down at night. At the moment I'm even taking Ritalin w/ the Nardil and never have a prob sleeping almost exactly 1hr after I take my 25mg of Seroquel. At such a low dose I'm pretty sure it works mostly on histamine. Shouldnt cause at gain or anything.

I also take Metformin to prevent weight gain from Nardil. Sadly I haven't lost weight w Metformin like many do but I haven't seen crazy increases like many do. If you are prediabetes I'd def ask about Metformin.

Kinda off topic buto do you know which generic manufacturer makes your lamictal? TEVA was my bongo generic for 10+ yrs but they stopped making it last year. I've tried a few others (Unichem/Taro/Alembic/Subvenite) but still haven't settled on one....lamictal is one med where the different generics seem to work differently for me. Annoying.
