Nardil/phenelzine starting dose

Posted by europerep on July 12, 2011, at 15:51:56

hello there..

I just wanted to get a couple of opinions on how to best start phenelzine (Nardil).

Initially, I thought of doing 15mg for a week, then 30mg for a week, then 45mg for a week, etc. Then I read in the prescriber's info that the usual starting dose is 3 x 15mg per day, i.e. 45mg right from the start. Now I'm not really sure. I decided I didn't want to start right away with 45mg, so today I started my phenelzine trial with 30mg split up in two doses. I'm not sure how to go on now, and I kind of feel like I'm rushing it ("why would they make 15mg pills if one is supposed to start at a higher dose than just 15mg once a day?"). This is weird, because I am actually taking less than recommended and still I feel like I'm going too high too quickly.

Right now, my idea is to do 30mg/d for three or four days, then do 45mg for a week, then 60mg for a week, and then see where I'm at. What do you guys think, and how did you start it?

Thanks in advance.
