> Hi, All.
> I have been agonizing with waves of anergic, crushing, and suicidal depression for almost two years while looking for alternatives to Nardil and Parnate. Both of these drugs offer minimal benefit to me, and I don't want to live out my years that way. I have persisted with Effexor for 6 months - even going up to 450 mg/day. With each dosage increase - or decrease - I experienced a few days of significant improvement. It was delicious.
> I tried Marplan many years ago, but abandoned it after only two weeks because of my impulsiveness. Very stupid. I don't remember what dosage I took. I experienced no side effects during that time.
> Years ago, doctors labelled Marplan as being a "weak Nardil". So my question is, has anyone responded better to Marplan than they did to both Nardil and Parnate?
> For anyone who is doing well on Marplan:
> How did you respond to Nardil and Parnate?
> What dosage are you taking?
> How long did it take to begin working?
> Side effects?
> I need to make a decision in a few days.

Hi Scott:

I am sorry you are having some heavy challenges. I just thought I would chime in with some of my thoughts, although I donèt know quite so much about MAOIès. (My apostrophe, and other keys arenèt

But, a few, are you still on the lithiumÉ I personally found a heavy hitter dose of lithium, 900mg, plus 450mg of Effexor...also, adding in a high dose of lamictal..200mg 2x daily...and 1mg of xanax, 3x daily, which, isnèt perfect, but gives a good whollop to both depression and anxiety. Clonidine also works well for my PTSD. On top of that, a small dose of Remeron...15mg. Seriously, it is a power-punch to depression and anxiety. Plus, I have been reading that lithium is one of the best treatments for anhedonia, especially in combination with an a.d. My psychiatrist swears by the combo.



I was brought up to believe..
Belief that's failed me now
As Life goes from bad to worse
No philosophy consoles me
In a clockwork universe..........
