Not necessarily. Furthermore, it is hard to distinguish between the euphoria and therapeutic effects. I have seen Nardil cause euphoria in many. However, this euphoria does not impair the senses or cause self-destructive behavior. Only rarely, I have seen some people get a little over-excited and overspend, or get very very talkative and friendly (myself being one of them!)

and I do understand that poops out.

Once again, not always. I have seen great reactions sustained over very long periods of times- decades. If 'poop-out' (tachyphylaxis) happens, there is ways to retain the great effects.


But this isnt the reason I want to take the medication. The reason I want to take it is to help with my severe social phobia.

It is the best treatment for SP. A side effect may indeed be a feeling of happiness or euphoria. That's not a bad side effect! And, like I said, I don't think any bad will come of it. Unfortunately the drugs are not targeted well enough to treat any psychiatric syndrome exclusively...as we really don't know what is causing these problems!


> Now will Nardil continue to work even though the "Europhic" phase is gone?

This phase might not go. It may be inherent to the treatment.

But really, try not to worry about this too much. Just have faith. I remembered worrying about all sorts of things before taking Nardil- then I thought "what the heck was I worried for!?"

Peace,
Ace
