Nardil users past and present

Posted by Michael Bell on July 3, 2008, at 23:18:12

Hi, I was just wondering if people who took nardil in 2004 or later can anwer a few questions. I am considering going onto Nardil again, but I don't quite remember how the reformulated nardil worked for me. Anyway, I am wondering about the effects (good or bad) that nardil had on the following symptoms:

1) anticipatory anxiety for upcoming social events

2) evaluating yourself while you are socializing (aka, worrying about what to say, if you are saying the right thing, etc.)

3) feeling that you are being judged as you socialize by the people you are socializing with

4) warped perception and "ideas of reference," . What I mean by this is, this happens when the individual believes that certain events are somehow related to them (e.g., sees two people laughing and believes that the people are laughing at them). The individual may realize that their ideas of reference are irrational, but maintains them nonetheless

5) overall feeling that other people are better than you (general self esteem, I guess).

6) generalized anxiety about life in general (not social anxiety(

7) attention issues, ability to complete tasks, feelign overwhelmed by things that need to get done, etc.


Thanks so much!

Michael,

The doctors in my clinic very, very rarely prescribe Nardil. If you had success with it before it may be worth considering.

You, of course, need to create a plan of action with your own doctor. Number 1 through 6 in your list should be treated with CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). Yes, I really think a good psychologist and frequent, well-structured therapy work as well as drugs for these things.

What is your diagnosis? Do you see a psychologist regularly? What meds are you taking now?

You are okay. You will not always feel like you do now.

due to two strange side effects I had to discontinue my Nardil trial..however, I'll try to answer your points to the best of my ability..


> 1) anticipatory anxiety for upcoming social events

I was very social, and anticipatory anxiety was totally gone..I actually looked forward to going to dances

> 2) evaluating yourself while you are socializing (aka, worrying about what to say, if you are saying the right thing, etc.)

no worries when out with people...had a good time, easily conversed with others
>
> 3) feeling that you are being judged as you socialize by the people you are socializing with

I don't normally have that problem, so I can't comment on that..

> 4) warped perception and "ideas of reference," . What I mean by this is, this happens when the individual believes that certain events are somehow related to them (e.g., sees two people laughing and believes that the people are laughing at them). The individual may realize that their ideas of reference are irrational, but maintains them nonetheless

i can't comment on this
>

I walked into the room like I owned the place
>
> 6) generalized anxiety about life in general (not social anxiety(

it stopped my chronic worrying

not as good as parnate for staying focused and on task, but still great energy to get going at things

In a nutshell Nardil was probably the best AD I've taken for feeling social..partly as it's a great AD and I felt more like "myself" again but with more of a get out there and start having a life feeling to it!

Sorry, I've knocked this off very quickly between running after grandkids! Hope I helped a bit..
