In reply to NARDIL INSOMNIA NEED HELP!!, posted by flipsactown on May 16, 2004, at 3:52:36

> Yesterday, was my 5th week on Nardil currently 60mg daily. At first I did not mind the insomnia as long as my depression was in check, an besides, all the extra time I had on my hands, I was able to put to productive use. I started taking OTC benadryl when I was desperate for some sleep which worked for a couple of weeks but did not give me continuous sleep. I begged my outgoing pdoc for an rx to help me sleep and he prescribed Seroquel. Took Seroquel the night before my new pdoc's appointment but was disappointed in that I got maybe 2hr sleep. My new pd doc rxs Ambien as I told him I was only getting a couple hours sleep. I have only been taking Ambien for 4 days, but this sleep deprivation is taken its toll on my depression and I would hate to stop Nardil because of sleep deprivation. My new pdoc is actually admitting he knows little about MAOI's and will do some research to see if there are other meds I can safely take with Nardil such as Trazodone.

Hi FST,

I assume Remeron was a failure? Trimipramine is another one you could ask for, it is a TCA that has no 5-HT or NE reuptake capabilities, it's a little weaker than Doxepin for H1 blockade & it is stronger than all other AD's for 5-HT2A blockade, I think it comes in a generic variety too now.

Cheers,
Panda.
