> When I was on 45mg for a few weeks I recall having some suicidal feelings. After going up to 60mg they disappeared and I felt generally better. I think 45mg is not an effective dose for most people so going up to 60mg might cause some positive change. Regarding side effects, it is surprising that you are feeling no side effects. I usually don't have side effect problems, but with Nardil I had ALL of them. After a few months they dissipated, but let me tell you I had lots of side effects (euphoria, then sleepiness, then sexual, etc.)


I appreciate the insight you have given in regards to Nardil. I raised my dose to 60mg on 12/28. I still haven't noticed any real changes for the positive, but I also know that 60mgs and higher usually tends to be the more effective dose range. How long were you on 60mgs before you noticed a difference? After everything I have been through, it is almost impossible for me to believe that it is going to give me the significant relief I need. Did you struggle with similar hopelessness during your time before noticing a change? And when you noticed a change, was it definitive? I know these are silly questions, but I have really struggled with not receiving any significant benefits from medications over the years, and at this point I can't even imagine what it would be like to one day say, "hmmmm, I think this medicine is really helping." It seems like a live in an endless game of saying "well, I haven't given the med enough time yet, or the dose isn't right" and eventually months have passed and I'm always left thinking, "ummm, so is that it?" Any more insight/support would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
