Thanks Atypical! I have tried 55 mg, 50 mg, 45 mg with the depression returning. I actually saw Dr Fredrick Quiten as a patient once. He did most of the studies on Nardil and was considered the expert. He said to lower the dose and try Ritalin. After one does on Ritalin, I was dysphoric/felt awful. He also said that 90% of patients do well on Nardil but only 10% of patient can tolerate it long term. Then he said, "So I just prescribe Prozac now."

For about 10 years, I did Nardil 45 mg, lithium 450 mg and 4 cups of coffee. My weight was down 20 lbs to 215. But slept poorly, was very anxious, very irritable all the time. But my Parnate trial was the worst. I have Panic Disorder with Depression, and Parnate really increased my Panic. I could only get to 40 mg.

Luckly, I haven't noticed a big difference between Nardil manufactures.

Instead of Parnate, I was think a combo of Lexapro or Effexor, 450 lithium and 0.5 Klonopin.

Great post atypical! Thank you for your help. Your a lifesaver!
