Hey Scott.

No worries. I could have worded/explained a bit better myself.

I am indeed itching to hit 60mg! But bare in mind that I take both bupropion & amitriptyline too. At least this time I have started the MAOI (Nardil) 'after' starting (already being on) the TCA 1st. The correct way round.

The main reason I have not upped the dose to 60mg yet is because my doc only prescribed enough at 45mg/day to last until my next appointment. Though I have counted them and have enough to go to 60 (if needed) 10-12 days before I see him next.

But right now I am being very pro-active! Have started the gym BY MYSELF! Big thing for me having social anxiety disorder (I'm looking for an AvPD diagnosis - fits me so well).

I am also attending mental health self-help groups twice weekly or more, and am catching buses again instead of walking all the time. Can never usually handle buses due to my anxiety. All this with barely any anxiety at all! No doubt the recently added pregabalin (Lyrica) is helping too.

I have even managed to lower my clonazepam from 4mg to 2.5mg/day. Though I do take an extra 1mg 2hrs before an anxiety provoking event. I will try halving that soon.

As I am stuck in a catch 22 situation with my housing right now, the best way for me to go is via a private landlord. But I can not go that way at the moment, as I am on benefits. However, I've been thinking in the last few days about work again! Perhaps when I get to 60mg Nardil.

So you see my hands are tied right now when it comes to the Nardil dosage.

And why am I adding mega-dose nutrients if I'm doing so well on my meds? Because I want to be getting help from them as well as keeping my med dosages as low as I can get away with. Its still an experiment tho. Starting today in fact, the highly dosed Vit C & B3 (as niacinamide/nicotinamide). And I am still taking nootropics to good effect too.
