I have been taking Nardil off and on (mostly on) for 18 years! I have been taking it regularly for the last 6 years. I have found on several occasions during the last 18 years that when I exercise regularly (at least 30 mins. daily of aerobic exercise) that my appetite is greatly supressed and losing weight is very easy. However, during the last 2 years I have gained @ 80 lbs. and have felt very tired--getting very little exercise as I just didn't feel up to it. We moved out of state and before I could get an appt. with a new dr. I saw that my current supply of Nardil would run out, so I began tapering off from 60 mg. daily down to 45, 30, 15 and completely off after tapering off for @ 4 wks. Several days after I was completely off my appetite changed suddenly from ravenous (expecially for sweets and alcoholic beverages--especially wine) to normal. I began to lose weight and actually feel better and not as tired. My whole attitude has improved tremendously. Has anyone else experienced symptoms similar to these??? I'm thinking now that I don't want to return to Nardil--especially not for a while.

My doctor has vaguely suggested a hypoglycemic attack. He says the usual side effect is constipation not diarrhea but the diarrhea stopped when I stopped the Nardil and I are ravenously for several days after, so there does seem to be a correlation. Any help would be appreciated.

> Most of the people have a weight gain instead of loss... My appetite definately changed more towards sweet tasting foods which is responsible for about 10 lbs of weight gained...
> I am not sure I understand your police issue.. You were impaired from Nardil? When I drive sometimes I almost fall asleep.. It is kind of dangerous so I usually get out and move around then I am usually fine.. Or smack myself in the face a few times :)
