> What dose were you on? I tried it about 10 years ago for about a month at 15mg TID and found it had no effect on me socially. Maybe I needed a higher dose.

Since 1983, I have been on Nardil perhaps 10 times. I never responded at all at dosages below 60mg/day. The first time I was tried on it, the dosage was 45 mg/day. It didn't seem to help. For me, 75 mg/day is the right dosage. In general, I consider the therapeutic range to be 60-90 mg/day.

It can take as long as 3-4 weeks after a dosage increase to see results. It takes almost 2 weeks just to establish the maximum percentage of MAO inhibition that the dosage is capable of producing.

Most people who respond well to Nardil describe it as being "pro-social". You might find yourself feeling more gregarious and spontaneous.

I find that Nardil does a better job at treating anhedonia than Parnate. Very early in treatment, Nardil makes me feel spacey and foggy-headed. Feeling weird in the beginning is a good sign for me.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
