> Now I'm really curious - what is the imprint code on the tablets? Are they orange? American Pfizer/Greenstone tablets are orange and have a "PD 270" imprint. The smell I can only describe as being something between perfume and a skunk. We aren't told to keep ours in the fridge, I wonder if they're the same and we really SHOULD be keeping ours in the fridge? Gavis tablets are also orange but not nearly as smelly.

Hehe, there's a couple of interesting things about these Nardelzine tablets. First, they come in a plastic bottle in which the tablets are loosely stored (the box rattles when you shake it). This is unusual for drugs here, usually they come in blisters with 10 or 14 tablets each, all of them individually sealed.

Then, after removing the seal and opening the bottle, it looks like the tablets are radioactive or something. They are colored in an extremely intense orange, you almost have to cover your eyes. (I exaggerate, but seriously, those pills have an extreme color.) The tablets look just like the phenelzine tablets that are at the bottom of the Wiki 'phenelzine' article, only that there is nothing imprinted on them on either side. Just the tablet.

Lastly, the smell.. I don't have them here right now so I can't describe it "live", but as I said it's amix between a pharmaceutical smell and the odor of spray paint. (Probably they have people sitting in the factory that spray them orange or something LOL.)

About the fridge thing:
Personally, I wonder whether it was once thought that phenelzine had to be stored in the fridge and they just didn't update it here. If it says nothing about keeping it in the fridge in the info that comes with the new generic Gavis version of phenelzine, then I doubt that it would be the other way around (i.e. that they only just discovered that phenelzine is unstable at temps above fridge level). So if I was you I wouldn't worry too much about it. Keeping them in the fridge probably doesn't hurt, but I don't think it's necessary for you. If it works for you, why change anything? (I will try to abide by the recommendation so as to rule out any possibility of the phenelzine deteriorating during the course of treatment.)

So much for now. Bye,
ER
