I'm most interested losing the insomnia and anorgasmia. I wouldn't mind not having to battle weight gain either, although it is forcing me to excersize.

Hi gypsea,

It's my understanding that the side-effects are like night and day. This has been my experience as moclobemide has been very kind to me. The only side-effect I had was headache last time I was on it for 4 weeks. It was starting to help but I stopped because I am stupid and impatient :) My hope is after 12 weeks and possibly a higher dose it will work as well as Nardil might have for me. It was and is a little harder for me to fall asleep on moclobemide but nothing I would call insomnia. Absolutely no sexual dysfunction either. However, moclobemide appears to be less potent than other drugs. This doesn't mean that it won't be a godsend for any given person, and I hope I am that person :) If a four week trial is any indication it looks like it might do the trick for me. Moclobemide has not been approved by the FDA, but your pdoc can write a prescription and you can order from Canada, etc. Dietary restrictions are not necessary, but I'm not sure about interactions. I believe it is less of a concern, but I really don't know for sure.

Jon
