Nardil and the New Me

Posted by KellyM on July 26, 2002, at 8:10:15

I have been taking Nardil for about seven weeks now. I would have to say it is definately the most effective medication that I have ever taken, and I have tried quite a few. I can see why it's the "gold standard" for social anxiety (from which I suffer). In the preceding time frame, I have gone back to my old job after not working for three months. I feel more confident and at ease than I ever thought possible. From that perspective, it's great news from the little orange pills.

A somewhat unsettling consequence of my lifting depression is a dread (I can't think of another word) that now sometimes hits me. When I have a project or I'm working, I do it with a vigor that I have not had in a long time. The problem comes into play when I have completed such things. I begin to think of my problems- purpose in life, what I want to do with my future, etc. In a very ironic way, when I was depressed such things may have concerned me, but now they have this new vigor of their own. Perhaps I'm not fully explaining this well, but I hope you get an idea.

I guess what I have to learn is that with the blessing of Nardil, I have the work of trying to fix some underlying problems. I think I had the idea that the medication would be the cure- as it turns out, it goes pretty darn far, just not all the way. If anyone has some perspective on this subject, I'd love to hear about.
