Thank you.

I'm sorry but how do people function in daily life with this type of dizziness? I was barely able to take a shower, haven't been outside in at least a week!

Trust me I would have started at 7.5 Nardil if I know it were possible. My pdoc knows how med-sensitive I am, so I assumed, wrongly so, that he was starting me on the lowest dose.

Thank you,

> Yes, try parnate. It still has dizziness issues, but not as intense as nardil.
> Keep in mind, based on reports from people here, the dizziness thing lessens significantly over time. We're tallking months though, not days or weeks. Just know, the dizzy you felt, is not the same dizzy 9 months from now.
> 15mg sounds like it was too much to start with. If it had been me, I would have gone down to 7.5mg. We all want to be better like right now, but a long term outlook is the way real healing happens.
> The highest dose of parnate I could handle when I started was 2.5mg....1/4 of the lowest dose. And it was plenty strong for me and worked pretty fast. I've learned over the years that whatever the directions are on the bottle, dose sizes, etc....garbage. There is no way whoever wrote those numbers could know you or predict your biology or your reaction. All that counts is.....what is your body trying to tell you? Listen. I hear it saying, 15mg nardil is too much to start with. It absolutely does not matter what a doctor says or a piece of literature says, but it absolutely does matter what your own body says.

"You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold."
