Comment:
I was first prescribed Nardil in 1961 for depression. Several times I weaned off at the instruction of a doctor and prescribed other anti-depressants.

I am again taking Nardil for the past 18 months. I st ... Show Full Comment

I have taken Nardil for 34 years. I have tried every updated anti-anxiety/depression drug there is and I always have to go back to Nardil. I've finally given up trying to get off Nardil.

I have been taking Nardil since 1985. I have periodically gone off it and tried other meds, and inevitably go back to Nardil. It is the only thing that works. I have Treatment Resistant Depression and am currently utilizing a new procedure called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. That, along with Nardil, have allowed me to keep functioning.

Comment:
Nardil helps w/anxiety and depression. It's sort of numbing and makes me calm. I've also taken parnate which is more stimulating. The problem w/both is the side effect of insomnia (which is worse w/parnate). True, without it, I probably wouldn't be sleeping anyway.
