Hi i am a new member. I was diagnosed with depression about 24 years ago. I was put on antidepressants which did not work as the nausea would not stop. I was then put on Nardil. The last seven years the side effect of fatigue has gotten worse and worse. There is so much that i want to do but i am finding it hard to get the energy to get motivated. I would like to talk to anyone that has been taking Nardil long term about the fatigue.
How bad is your fatigue on Nardil?

I don't find anyone reporting fatigue other than normal tiredness we all get. Seek out another cause. Or wean off the drug only under medical guidance to see if fatigue goes away with no phenelzine.
Hi Tazba, I have been taking Nardil for many many years for depression and anxiety. I must add after trying many other anti depressants, Nardil worked best for me. However, this medication does not cause any fatigue for me. Perhaps there is something else going on in your body and it might not be the Nardil causing you that fatigue issue. I would speak to an internist and see if there are other underlying causes for you fatigue. Wishing you lots of luck!
Hi Tazba, I've been on Nardil/Phenylzine for about 30 yrs. after going through all the other meds at that time. I have found myself to be without any energy what so ever, for years. I am also bipolar, seems to run in 10 yr cycles, and actually seems to help. I constantly procrastinate everything.
I do need to push myself physically and mentally and things do get done, although not at the rate I was use to doing.
I have been checked for other medical problems and nothing. Despite this, I will continue with Nardil/Phenylzine for as long as I can as it doesn't seem to have side effects and I don't need to be on anything else and walking around like a zombie as so many people do. It's simple to take. I do have my up and downs, but to me, people should be offered this first.
