No problem.

> I decided to take only 10 mg of Marplan yesterday. I took none today. I actually feel better. It seems that Marplan was increasing suicidality rather than reducing it. Also, I have been experiencing great fatigue in all of my muscles. Not so much today. I hope it was a side effect.

Glad you feel better, whatever the reason.

Per unit of weight, or what do you mean?

I think you can get near 100% MAO inhibition with the other potent MAOIs too. Correct me if I'm wrong.

However, the NIH stopped giving it to their patients because there were some fatalities involving cardiovascular function. I stopped taking clorgyline before that, though. My response was incomplete, and they wouldn't add a TCA to it.

Was it better than the usual (FDA-approved) MAOIs?
