    Nardil is NOT for everyone. I was on this medication for only 1month and I was doing things that was not the normality to me. I gained so much weight, I was always dropping something on the floor, taking a nap was a MUST because I could not keep my eyes open during the day, I walked and felt like I was going to pass out if I didn't take a break, I bit off a nice chunk of the side of my tounge ...

    I've tried so many other medications for depression, probably a dozen or more in various combinations, and this is the first one I can see working. I'm thrilled with this med.

    This medication is brilliant. Been on it 13 years and still works very well for depression and anxiety. No other medication worked. I don't find it hard being on this drug, the diet required is hardly noticeable. When I have gone off it I fall into a depressed heap and can barely function. This medication has been so good to me.

    I have been on Nardil for almost 3o years.. it is a very effective medication for anxiety and agoraphobia. I have had several episodes of severe reaction due to ingesting cajun, not knowing that it would affect by B.P.. If you stick to the diet and do not take stimulants of any kind. It is a wonderful drug for severe depression
