Nardil USA shortage--what are u switching to? sls?

Posted by zonked on July 27, 2020, at 6:03:17

I hope someone sees this. I live in the SF bay area but will buy from anywhere within 100 miles or mail order, the entire CVS, Target, Walgreens and Kaiser systems are backordered with both generics and brand in the US. I have 16 days supply left, down to 75mg/day from 100mg/day.

Also, my doctor and I are considering that I won't be able to get more in time. I am worried because I've tried so many things that didn't work, among them:

Marplan (isocarboxazid) - 1 month at max dose (Forget what that was, 60? nothing. had trauma in my life at the time though, my Mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer around that time)

Parnate (tranylcipromine): Good for several years. Tried it during a spell a few years ago and no perceived benefit after several weeks at 100mg/day (40mg/day over the max) EMSAM (selegiline patch), oral selegiline: made me irritable and "snappy" SSRIs: Don't work or make me mixed (bipolar NOS) Burpropion: Gave me panic attacks

I am thinking of switching to Marplan , is anyone else considering doing this? How did your doctor cross titrate you?

PS babblers: 19 months clean from drugs and alcohol and otherwise doing well. C-PTSD and ASD (Aspergers) , ADHD are the core roots of my psychological issues, DBT has helped immensely. Also this account is tied to an old email address so I won't be able to see babblemail and I will check for replies manually.

Gratefully, zonked

I think you can change the e-mail address if you have the password.

There has been a lot of discussion about the availability of generic Nardil on this reddit forum:

https://old.reddit.com/r/MAOIs/

Last I saw it should be back in stock (in the US) soon. Someone contacted both Lupin and Greenstone.

I take Marplan 50 + Lamictal 300 and do pretty well. Marplan is much more subtle than Nardil (whcih I didn't do well on - very up/down but I'm BP1). I didn't do a washout. I did a pretty quick crosstaper OKed by my doctor. Pretty much next day switch though Nardil>Marplan.

Good luck!

I took Marplan before it was axed in 1994 by Roche. It worked very well. I cant remember when it came back. I may want to try it again. Do you have any trouble getting it and is the cost high, as I think i heard it is $800 or maybe you have insurance.
Anything you can tell me about your experience on it will help me if I decide or am forced to change from Nardil to something else. Also do you taken anything with it? Thanks so much.
