Advice needed: Fastest way to wean off Nardil?

Posted by Girlnterrupted78 on May 27, 2008, at 18:40:16

I know there's many people on this site who are or have been on Nardil at some point in their lives.

Well, this question is for anyone who has stopped Nardil.

I was wondering if you could please tell me what is the fastest way you can safely stop Nardil? I know I need to wean myself off, but I want to do it in the fastest possible way without going insane.

Unfortunately, I have gained more weight than I can handle and it's hurting my self-esteem really bad. I'm taking 60mgs daily.

Could someone please help me? How do I stop Nardil fast? And what's the worst case scenario in the event I go a bit too fast?

I decided (on my own) to reduce 1/4 every 3 days. So I'm thinking of going: (A) 45mg for 3 days, (B) 30mg for 3 days, (C)15mgs for 3 days, and then ZERO.

This means I'd be getting off 60mgs in about 10 days.

After that I would wait 15 days to start another antidepressant.

I did not ask my doctor about this because he's made too many mistakes for me to trust him. If anyone remembers, this is the same doctor who sent me to the ER due to an overdose of Nardil (90mg.) He started me off on 45mgs, and when that didn't work, he put me on 90mgs right away. This caused me the worst headache I've had in my life. No food interaction--it was just the overdose. The minute I lowered the amount the headaches stopped.

So apparently he's not the best person to ask.

Any advice from someone knowledgeable or experienced on this would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
