I just quit Marplan last week after a seven week trial. I had high hopes for it because an international authority recommended it for me at a consult. I was very disappointed:it was so toxic for me that I looked really bad and my colleagues held an "intervention" and insisted I go see a doctor. My husband even had to come pick me up from work because I couldn't drive home. The side effects included rapid cycling, urinary hesitancy, constipation, dizziness and very low blood pressure. Oh, and one EPS episode.

But don't let me dissuade you--aparently they use it at Stanford with many treatment resistant patients with great success.

I actually found moclobemide, a reversible MAOI, much more effective for me. I took it for 3 years.

Good luck!
