Nardil/ Phenelzine dosing schedule

Posted by Stargazer2 on August 29, 2020, at 9:15:32

Sorry for this sounding repetitive but I looked up the half times for Nardil today and got 2 different values. One says it is 11.6 hrs. Another says 1.5-4 hrs. The only thing I can think of is that there was the original Nardil that stayed in your system longer and now the newer one. Maybe the lower Half-life value refers to the reformulated Nardil. I think that was done around 2009.

When I took the original in 1987 I was well controlled on 30mg, 15 mg 2x/day. No other meds were needed as it worked so well for me. I now take 45-60 all in the am and also take Ritalin and low dose Seroquel. Maybe if the shorter half life is accurate for the current Phenelzine it might be better to dose more often such as 2-3 xs/day. Any thoughts?

And would the brand Nardil still have the longer half life?
If so, would that make sense to take if you could get it and afford it?

What is everyone here doing for the dosing of Nardil/ Phenelzine?
Thanks all.

Current meds: Nardil 45/60 w am, Ritalin 5mg 2-3/day, Seroquel 50 at hs, Lithium 300 ER QOD,
DL-Phenylalanine 1-2/wk,
