Nardil for depression and OCD

Posted by greywolf on May 26, 2004, at 13:24:51


After exhausting my other alternatives, I'm starting Nardil in a couple days, primarily for long-term depression. My doc thinks it may also have a beneficial effect on my rather severe OCD--not that it will have any major impact, but it may diminish the physical signs like tics and involuntary movements.

Has anyone else had experience with Nardil and OCD?

Yes me. Nardil is brilliant for depression, social phobia, and so many other things. It can also be very very good for OCD. In my case it helps OCD a bit- but I need augmentation.

However, there a clinical trials (Michael Jenike MD and others) that show MAOI's can be brilliant for OCD.

I remember one where, after 15 weeks of high dose Nardil, OCD was completely abolished in one patient...
