I have been taking Nardil for about 10 years. Almost everything else was tried. It worked extremely well in the first few years. However, my depression continued to get worse after a couple years.

I was on this medication in the 90's and then returned to it in 2011 because of tremendous anxiety/depression due to home and work pressure. During the interim, Pfizer reformulated the generic and there has been much controversy over that because the old formula is said to have been better, and it was - though like this one it seems to become less effective over time. In any event, at 45 mg. a ... Show Full Comment

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
