I'm not sure this us equally valid for Nardil but lithium is very highly recommended as adjunctive therapy with Parnate. I took Nardil for years without podium and now Parnate without lithium. But after some of what I've been reading, I think I will ask my doc to augment my Parnate if necessary with either lithium, a norepinephrine drug or Small dose of dexedrine, in order if preference.

One special thing for you. After I had been on Nardil a while and then declined again some , he suggested adding a very small dose of Geodon- just one 20mg cap h.s. It has so many actions at so many sites that I doubt anyone really knows what the beneficial result stems from primarily, but Wiki has a good article in it. If you don't care for lithium or don't want all the blood tests for levels, give Geodon a try.
For me, after just a dayfirst or two at most & the lowesst dose, I woke up one morning the first week and was in sudden, total remission. Maybe a little anxiety (panic attacks some days instead if several a day) still there but I experienced something called "motivation" that I hadn't felt since childhood, honesty. Highly increased energy and interest in life. It did require frequent dosages upward and eventually pooped out except for the anxiety helpn . I still take it and that period during the first year on it I was truly, actually, ,naturally, happy and well.
