Hi Chris.

That was a wonderful presentation. It helped to reinforce much of what I have learned about myself through contemplation and experience. I was married to a stunningly gorgeous woman whom I could not fall in love with, no matter how hard I tried. At first, I thought that it was the depression that was preventing these feelings from emerging. However, I was committed to follow the idyllic script of society, even though it never felt right to me. My ex-wife was more than intelligent enough for me, but our differences in constitution left me feeling empty. She never really knew me. I never really knew her. She was my caretaker. She handled just about every responsibility of running the household. I was employed at the beginning of the marriage, but depression eventually defeated me. My manic reactions to MAOIs didn't help.

The measure of achievement lies not in how high the mountain, but in how hard the climb. The measure of success lies only in how high one feels he must climb to get there.

I say that to myself to remind me that I have not failed. It is not my fault. I have survived. I always do the best that I can. I have achieved much. To try and fail is still a success.

My suggestion to you at this point is to explore the use of prazosin as an adjunct in the treatment of your depression, anxiety, and developmental PTSD (history of abuse, neglect, and chronic trauma).

If you do choose to go with Nardil, were you planning to combine it with nortriptyline? What about combining Nardil with clonazepam? If you do decide to add prazosin, it is advisable to start at 1 mg/day given at night for a few days in order to avoid hypotension and dizziness. You can then begin increasing the dosage as tolerated beginning at 3 mg/day. It seems to me that the dosages used in PTSD studies range between 6 - 12 mg/day. I do not do well at dosages below 20 mg/day. The manufacturer indicates that a dosage of 40 mg/day is safe.
