Well...actually, I had a bit of positional/orthostaic hypotension for the first few weeks, but I also started taking Inderal at the time..Inderal is a beta-blocker...no I don't have heart problems...

Im actually only 23, I have epilepsy, and Inderal helps tremendously with the mysterious tremors I have in my hand (2 neurologist's and several tests have yet to discover why I have this tremor...Im convinced it was caused by the several years I was taking SSRIs..but thats another story)...

back to the MAOI side effects... I havent gained any weight, and as far as sexual side effects, I would take Nardil over Paxil or Effexor or even Wellbutrin ANY DAY...on the SSRIs I felt like an emotion-less zombie...yeah I was no longer anxious, or depressed, but I wasn't happy either, I was lost somewhere in the middle, and very uncomfortable there.

nardil, for me, at least, has been a miracle drug, far less side effects than the SSRIs, or Effexor, Wellbutrin

I do have memory difficulties, but I can not attribute them to Nardil, I take Neurontin and Topamax for epilepsy and both of these medications have adverse effects on memory.

I take:
Nardil 60mg
Neurontin 1800mg
Topamax 200mg
Inderal 40mg
