Nardil is great as an AD and I haven't noticed any cycling. Lots of energy in the day, tired by the end of it. Wake up on my own (so amazing!) and start another good day.

I started out at 15 mg, ramped up to 60, then cut back to 30. I stopped sleeping at 60. 30 seems to be perfect.

There was more of an improvement of social phobia symptoms at 60 though. My hands and feet actually stopped sweating. Something I have lived with since I was born. Now that I've cut back to 30, the sweaty hands and feet are back, but not as bad as it was before. I was very impressed with the way Nardil works on anxiety. Every symptom I had/have was gone. Just gone.

Oh, and I don't have any side effects it seems. I did at the higher dosages, but they went away when I cut back. Even the ones I had were tolerable, except for the not sleeping one.

I saw one of your posts about Lithium (I can't keep up with all the posts...not enough time in the day!) - wondering if it would help the cycling... My fiancé’s experience, being a long time lithium user, is that lithium brings down the mania - hypo or full blown mania. It doesn't do anything to lift the depression though. He was having some swings into depression a few years back so they added Lamictal since it has a lifting effect. It seems to work for him. Of course, he's not a rapid cycler and he's BPI. Still, if lithium brings down mania - that would cut out the up swings, which would help prevent the crashes. Theoretically anyway.

Hope you find the perfect cocktail,

Morgana BPII - Nardil, Lamictal & Verapamil

P.S. What symptoms do you take the Klonopin for? I discovered that having a longer acting muscle relaxant at night really helps my neck/head. It's something we might try...
