And all you changed was to reduce the dose of Nardil? That *is* strange, because Nardil tends to have sedative effects. Then again, Nardil can be activating for some people, and apparently it is in your case.

I meant that some people get an enhanced response to their antidepressant regimen from an adjunctive antipsychotic (AP). It does not make much intuitive sense, but some APs are officially approved for this use, which suggests that it is not unsual for this to be better than placebo.
