> Hello,

> I have been on Nardil since 12/4, first at 45mgs until 12/28 and then 60mgs since. When I here the benefits many people receive from Nardil, I keep thinking that it is exactly the right med for me, that is if it works. I have tried just about every ssri with know definitive, long term benefit. My problem is right now is that I'm really struggling with life. Alot of very traditional symptoms people go through with more severe levels of depression/anxiety (everything seems overwhelming, do not want to be around anyone or do anything, frequent crying, completely stuck in my head with negative thinking, etc.) It is interesting though, I lived a very fulfilling life until around the age of 21 when I swear out of nowhere I started having unexplained anxiety/depression issues at varying levels since. I feel like i am back in the common place i've been of saying, "I haven't given it enough time or enough of a dose," and I know that could be true, but it doesn't help in the mean time as i am struggling just to get through day to day. Can you describe your nardil experience in as much detail as possible? What dose was right for you? How long did it take to notice a change? When you noticed a change was it definitive and far from placebo effect? What side effects did you have? How long did you have to be on Nardil before everything seemed to come together in positive benefits being left, with a great reduction in side effects? I would really appreciate your response, as I am just struggling right now and don't feel like I am having the traditional response to Nardil that I often read about.

Dont worry mantus things are going to get better for u. Uve only been on it for a month. I didnt really notice anything signifigant till inbetween 3-4 months after starting. Takes a while but its worth it. The change was definitly not placibo effect, I could best describe it as heightened awareness mixed with a truely good sense of well being.If ur a higher dosage u will experience the nardil euphoria people describe. That feeling is amazing and it last for a couple of hours its definitly a great start to ur day. I went from feeling hopeless to feeling ready to take on life and its challenges.I became a social outgoing and confident being which is what I truely am. Side effect wise I delt with weight gain insomnia and sweating. The weight gain was the only one that was really a problem and the insomnia went away after a few months till I upped the dosage. See the reason I had to go off it was because I was taking 120mg which prolly was too much. But it works 100% at defeating the depression and sa. Looking back though I would have been fine at a much lower dosage and it would have been better for me. Now I am going back on it in febuary and we are augmenting the nardil with lithium.Good luck mantis and if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
