> That sounds great i cant wait for this.
> One side effect i wish would dissipate is feeling lethargic.

that should go for abit but will return later if you get any DA "downregulation". ive lost that rockin energy i used to get. you can add a stim here also...but dr's are usually not friendly with the idea of stim + maoi but you could bring it up...the lethargy and see about recommendations. he may say exercise which will help to some degree. coffee also (for me) in a way...DA sups (careful with dosing)

> Myco do u think what you do with ur nardil eg. take it on an empty stomach, drink lots of water and avoid anything that creates more stomach acid for 45mins would also help with the aussie link nardil thats kept in the fridge?

Phenelzine "likes" alkaline conditions...your nardil has same active ingredient as mine...unless it states otherwise in your monograph or literature...you can take with water on empty stomach and no food. perhaps a b6 or folic acid to aid. phenelzine is phenelzine but not sure about inert ingredients though...buffers and things in the pill will adjust pH for stability. i dont think it matters much though...i notice no difference in nardil long run from that but it hits faster and harder with an empty stomach and water for me....it creeps up slow with food but still works.

ah back to a question i had ages ago...i dont understand why you aussies keep it in fridge? is it because the climate you live in provides a bad opportunity for it to lose efficacy if you leave it out on the table? cant find any reason as to why my canadian nardil or your aussie nardil should be in the fridge...my monograph says 15-30C and yours is what 2-8C i think. weird....inert ingredients are not that diff. big big favour if you could find out the real reason for this :o) perty pwease lol

I do 3 times a day. that was my regimen when i started and i havent changed it yet (30mg 8-9am area; 30mg 2-3pm area; 15mg 8pm area). That is recommended for beginners...the spacing...to minimize side from a heavy dosing. also some will take before 3pm to help prevent sleep issues.

The 2pm thing might be nardil lethargy issue that sets in in the afternoon for many people. just lay down and chill for an hour or so and it usually passes leaving you pumped in the evening...enough energy for billy to go out 'birding' at night huh billy? lol

3 times is a tad annoying but if youve been on for many months it doesnt matter what time...if you like take it all in the morning in one handful...well i shouldnt recommend that in case you react poorly to it but people do that. once mao has been inhibited, body used to nardil for months, timing means nothing really. your brain is well adapted.

> Also do u guys take it 2 or 3 times a day?
> I was feeling ok in the morning, then id feel really agitated, spaced out and drained from about 2pm onwards. My doc then suggested taking it 3 times a day and it seems to be helping with that problem, albiet taking it 3 times a day can be a tad anoying!
