Hi

I am on Nardil now 60 mg and took Parnate from 1990-1996 at 30 mg. The Parnate definitely is activating and does make you more social and confident. As I have social anxiety and a tendency to avoid people, that was a good thing for me. But, it does exacerbate anxiety in people who suffer from it (like I do as well) so that was a downside. It also caused me to lose too much weight.

The Nardil is great for anxiety and does help with social anxiety as well, but the weight gain is a challenge. Both Parnate and NArdil cause extreme insomnia. I think both can work for helping those with SA, but if you have obsessive worrying as part of it and a lot of anxiety, Nardil is probably the better choice. Weight can be controlled, it just takes huge effort (just like the SSRI's, which I've also been on). Hope this helps.
