Is anyone currently taking Marplan?

Posted by JayBTV2 on February 23, 2010, at 21:09:27


I'm about 3months into a trial of Parnate and the results have been so so. I'm up to 50/60mg for the last couple weeks and I don't think it's helping my depression all that much. I'm not finding interest in things I used like (IE playing guitar) and I'm just pretty blah overall.

I plan on giving Parnate at least 3 more weeks at 60mg (when I see my pDoc next). However at my last visit to him he mentioned we could try Naril or Marplan at somepoint if Parnate doesn't work out.

I had a brief trial w/ Nardil a few years ago but I was smoking pot with it and went manic.

I'm totally clean these days and on Lithium and Lamictal so I'm not really worried about Mania. But I keep hearing about weight gain and sexual side effects of Nardil so if we do decide to switch I think my choice will be Marplan.

Unlike Parnate and Nardil there's very limit anecdotal reviews of Marplan.

Is anyone on this forum currently taking it (hopefully doing well)? I'm interested in any information - preferably from personal experience. I've heard it referred to as Nardil-Lite but is anyone currently having success with it?

Thanks for any info.
