Hi Ace, wow what you describe is amazing, can I ask, how long did it take for the Nardil to kick in when you originally started taking it, did it gradually begin to take effect, or did you just wake up one morning and WAM! There it was. I'm on week five of it now, and the depression is really hard. I went up to 90mg last night.

thanks so much, Ben

> No, I'm not bipolar nor do I think Nardil has induced hypomania as defined by psychiatric nosology - for instance on Nardil when I moved house a while back (I always get depressed moving house) I felt a little flat, but not depressed like I would have sans Nardil. Also, if I felt I did poorly in an exam I would feel flat but Nardil would protect me from spiraling into a depression. But usually, and I mean the vast majority, it really motivates me, makes me happy to be alive, puts my heart into life and makes the hard times much much less hard.
