> Male/41 yrs old. The sexual problems (drive and performance) have also been dose-dependent for me. The more Nardil, the less sexual drive and ability to reach orgasm, although erection is not a problem. For me, 60mg creates delayed orgasm (which can be a good thing), whereas 75mg results in frequent anorgasmia. Knowing my response to the dosage this well, I can anticipate a successful episode by reducing dosage by 15mg over the duration of a week and safely remain there for 1-2 weeks. Takes some of the spontaneity out, but I can live with that. As for the previous post (I forgot the name), the reason the Psychiatrists have been reluctant to leave me on the Nardil is two-fold: 1)the risk of a hypertensive reaction from eating/drinking items high in tyramine (I've been fortunate never to experience this); and 2)a desire to try the latest med on the market that's surely got to be better than an MAOI from the fifties. I thought the same thing for the first 10 years, but perfectly happy to remain on Nardil until I see proof that others responding to Nardil have consistently found success with a new agent.

Seems like you've got the sex thing somewhat under control. I can definitely relate to the temptation to find something better than what we are all on. Each new drug that comes out seems to promise the world (although that seems to have lessened recently). I tried topomax and lamictal awhile back and went off the SSRIs I was on. It very well almost resulted in a disaster of the suicidal nature. Still, I'm not happy with the Lithium, Celexa, and Welbutrin I'm on and am not completely sure I wouldn't try another new drug if it was very promising. Dumb, eh?
