Hey sigismund!

Thanks for the post. So Nardil at full dose 60 mg gets me about 80% better and I had friends and socialized. But I gain 40 lbs, sexually impotent, MAOI diet, horrible insomnia and poor memory and then my friends disappear. I have reduced Nardil to 50 mg with lithium, lamictal augmentation and now have 30 lbs weight gain, insomnia, diet but my memory is better. I am about 70%, but no close friends. Hard to explain to people that I don't drink coffee, alcohol, go to bed by 10 o'clock, meditate, exercise, MAOI diet, can't sleep over due to insomnia. Its been 24 years now, so Nardil weight is starting symptoms of prediabetes, HTN and hip/knee arthritis

I did ECT 15 years ago and it work with no memory loss. Actually I did it because I would go on Nardil 60 mg then reduce to 45 mg because of side effects and Nardil stopped working. And now ECT is so much more improved. It should work for me now. My new doctor has a patient on long term maintenance ECT.

What do you think?
