... not prescribed anymore up untill now. feel really dzzy n nauseaus today did other people have this problem
It's normal to feel dizzy and sick'ish when you first start. I had low blood pressure symptoms for sev. months when I first went on Nardil and not just when standing up. I quit taking Nardil after about a year due to the weight gain and I'm trying Parnate. Also have had low blood pressure/dizzy, etc when taking Parnate but it's not as bad.
Hi linje, I have been on Nardil since I was 27 and am 49yrs. old now. Yes, sometimes over these yrs. Nardil has stopped working for me. My pdoc would try me on every antidepressant, mood stabilizer in place of Nardil. Nothing helped (social phobia, anxiety, severe depression, bipolar2) Always would go back on Nardil after exhausting every ther drug and/or drug combination. Every time I've gone back on Nardil it would work for me again.
The beginning side effects were extreme, but I'd always struggle through them because I knew they'd abate and knew Nardil would be the godsend it's always been for me again.
Side effects would lower my blood pressure, which runs low-normal anyway and I'd faint, litterally run into things and at times had to crawl back to my bed after getting up at night.
These side effects ALWAYS abated in ~2 to 3 wks. The only side effects I have continually is it's hard to urinate and a bit of weight gain. As far as the interactions with food, drugs, and other things. I've been moderately careful, somtimes minimally careful and have had at most 4 minor reactions with hypertension. Called my pdoc everytime, she'd have me take my BP, call back, tell her my blood pressure and I never had to go to the hospital or get tx. for the reaction.
NOTE-I'd advise anyone that's on an MAO Inhibitor to strongly adhere to the dietary restrictions because my minor reactions was due to pure luck.
I now abide very strictly with all the restrictions.
