No longer stoned on Nardil

Posted by UgottaHaveHope on April 13, 2007, at 6:36:26

It appears it was the Seroquel that was causing that feeling, therefore under doctors orders I went down from 150 to 50 to 25. So I no longer feel spaced out all day like Jim Morrison, but I do feel extreme fatigue (only thing else Im taking is 2mg of Klonopin at night).

Today I went and bought a bottle of No-Doz. I drink Diet Cokes all day, and they do little or nothing. Since I am trying to maintain my same weight or lose it, I dont want that sugar anymore if it's not going to help with sedation. So I bought the No-Doz and took 200mg. It helped a little better, but still sleepy. And my sleep is terrible, maybe four hours per night. Ironically, however, instead of freaking over sleep, it has made me so tired that it takes anxiety away, so not a bad tradeoff.

Anyone have any idea on how much No-Doz I should take? My BP does not rise at all on No-Doz or Cokes. Does 100mg of No-Doz = 1 Coke? Anyone know or could you take an educated guess?

Football, I know, I know, you are going to recommend Provogil, which I am considering when I go to pdoc on April 17. But if possible, Id prefer not to add any more prescription drugs. I am on four (Nardil, Klonopin, Seroquel, Purple Pill) and I already feel like a "human drug store", which bothers me.

I am closing in on two weeks of 45mg on Nardil. I am taking it for generalized anxiety, but I guess I had some social anxiety and didnt know. When I was half awake last night, I talked on the phone for two hours for the first time in forever and then in person with my family for another 30 minutes. I have always been outgoing (you can tell by my posts), but I was a freaking chatterbox LOL.

Will keep everyone posted. Thanks for responses. Michael
