    I've been on Nardil for about 30 years and it was a wonder drug for me as well. for the first time in my life I felt sane and didn't cry all the time. I started going through a low grade depression about a year ago due to life circumstances and my doctor tried to cut back on my Nardil to add another MAOI as I had tried that in the past and felt great. Unfortunately in trying to get off N ... Show Full Comment

    It helped relieve my depression but the side effects made it unsafe for me to take. i gained 90 pounds. I would fall asleep/nod off when driving and had accidents wth my child in the car. Sometimes I would nod off in the middle of a conversation causing me to lose my job.

    There is a long list of foods which need to be avoided while taking Nardil. I have had a reaction to aged Swiss)cheese; I do not drink red wines; I eat chocolate and drink coffee regularly. Periodically I reduce my dosage (which has been 4, 5, and 6 tablets at various times) to test its efficacy.

Six weeks later, I felt like a new person. Over time, my dose had to be raised from 90 mg/day to 105, and when I became severely depressed, I had to go up to 135/day; it was the only way for the Nardil to kick in ag ... Show Full Comment
