>But I would agree with the poster that said why ask for Selegeline if Nardil is not working.

At first glance, when I saw this question I said "WTF?????", to be totally honest.

I thought I made it very clean the Selly (as I call it) doesn't have ANY of the 4 INTENSELY HORRIBLE side-effects that Nardil has. I could have sworn I'm written that many times over.

I checked my notes and I didn't list a single side effect for Selly, and the bottle is empty, which usually means I tolerated quite well, which matches my memory too.

Sorry if I can't take:
worsening insomnia (need 3 drugs to sleep every night)

I sweat doing even the most minimal movements like going downstairs to get something, in humidity, I feel like I'm going to explode. I sweat from drinking hot liquids, I sweat through clothes and have to get up and change them at night, and after a luke-warm shower, I have to cool off under a cool fan for 5-10 minutes before I can put any clothes on. If it's winter and I take a hot shower, my body continues to sweat, 20 mins after I've dried off, and soaks the clothes I just put on.

I never go to the bathroom normally. Nardil gives me terrible constipation, so I've tried everything, even going to a Gastro guy a few times. I'm either bloated or have to run to the bathroom 5-6 times a day.. so those days, I can't even leave the house.. some other med gives me gas too, so I'm a total mess. Won't leave the house.

The inability to lose weight, and even gain more after working out blows my mind and I HATE how I look. Call me a control freak, I don't care. I've been in awesome shape all my life until Seroquel, Zyprexa, and Nardil. I haven't lost of a pound in 1.5 years on Nardil. I eat almost nothing, sweat like crazy working on pool and yard all day, and I end up weighting even more. It's giving me a double chin now, my face looks fatter (and gross), then there the basketball gut. NO THANKS.

Umm, is THAT enough reason for you?

Oh yeah, and I cry all the time, still having suicidal ideation (which Nardil USED to control, and now does not, and I'm miserable and bedridden many more days than I used to be on Nardil. It's Pooping out. Like every other drug I've ever tried.
