Is the dietary restriction for Nardil different from Parnate? I didn't know that. I thought it was the same for all MAOI's.

As Phil said, the side effects seem to vary for different people. I was hoping Cyberspace would jump in here too. I believe he had the same elevated sex drive that I had (have). And I believe insomnia is more common than sleepiness - in general of course. There are a few people that seem to have a great intolerance for the drug. Even 10 or 20mg seems to be extremely difficult on their system. For myself, I was taking up to 100mg with the only increased side effects being more dizziness at times, more insomnia (but I take Trazodone as stated before), increased acne, and increased sex drive, which is a negative if you're single. : )

It sounds like YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) is very true on Parnate.


ps - It just occurred to me, but I wonder if anyone has ever done any studies about differences in side effects for males vs females. I wonder if there are any differences based on sex.
