> Only comment I have is why does every one want to go on nardil? Fondly, Phillipa

Hi Phillipa,
Being on and off Nardil several times, I think I can answer your question. After someone has tried 25 or 30 combinations of medications that do not work, I believe they would risk anything, even death, for the chance to feel good again. Nardil is one of those meds that for atypical depression with anxiety, it works, when nothing else will. For treatment resistant atypical depression, it will still work on 75 or 80 percent of the people who give it a honest trial. Nardil is the gold standard for atypical depression, social and generalized anxiety. In my opinion it should be the 2nd med. tried for these conditions. Not the 10th. Every time I've come off Nardil in the past 10 years, my major depression has returned. There is some danger, but not as much as treatment resistant chronic depression.
Take Care,
Jedi
