My beginning with Nardil tok about 8 weeks as well.....was about to give up....just started Parnate two months ago and troubled by bad anxiety...Nardil never did that. (I switched because the new formula not as good as the previous one I took for 20 years!) I am perplexed by this anxiety...has my stomach in knots...may have to quit and go back to Nardil or maybe try Marplan??

> No, not that I can remember (re: heart skipping/racing.) In fact if anything the Marplan calmed down my heart. My doctor when I was young used to say that I had a race horse heart because it's resting rate was around 90. On MAOI's it became a normal 60-70 beats per minute. The hypochondria just vanished. The medicine brought my focus outward instead of inward so I just stopped worrying about my body. And leaving Parnate out of it because it is too soon to tell, Marplan was much better than Nardil. And now that I have heard complaints that they changed the chemical composition of Nardil from its original form to a weaker variety I would definitiely put it on the bottom of my MAOI choices.
