> I just did this switch (Nardil-->Marplan w/o a washout) in January and did once a couple years ago.

So one day Nardil, the next Marplan? My doc has me on this schedule (havent started yet):

4/0
3/1
2/2
1/3
And then 3 Marplan daily for a couple of weeks, till I see him again.
Too fast?

> I actually felt pretty good for the first 2 weeks or so after switching. I don't remember having any w/d the last time around but I did have some issues this time. Really the big problem I had was restless leg (zaps). I can't be 100% sure that they came about due to stopping Nardil and not some other reason but there ws a period of 10 days or so I had terrible sleep. It would make sense that the decrease in Gaba could have caused me to have that issue.

> The great news is I'm doing fantastic the past week or so. It's very much like the first time I too Maprlan where I just feel like "my best self". I'm on point/positive and my brain backs up that feeling (vs. trying to undercut/doubt everything).

Hey thats awesome!

> I hope you dont' experience much w/d and get to a good place w/ Marplan. It seems to be a med that works really well for the people who it does work for......sounds odd but......it's definitely the best medicine I've found for me to this point (1999 to 2020).

> I should note my other meds though:
>
> Marplan 40mg (since Jan 9)
> Desipramine 25mg (Only 8days so far)
> Lamictal 200mg (Unichem verified batch)
> Metformin 1500 (Mylan IR verified batch)
> Seroquel ~25mg (for sleep)

Do any of these meds replace GABA?

>
> I have been drinking crystal light the past few weeks also which has aspartame (breaks down to phenylalanine). I do think that may help a touch as well and I know there's a lot of "bad news" research about Aspartame. At some point I'll go back to water only but I'm not looking to tinker w/ too much while I'm doing really well for the first time in a months.

This is funny, I too drink several glasses of Crystal Light each day.

> Good luck!!

Thanks!
