Welcome and congratulations for finding this informative site on the anti-depressant Nardil. I sincerely hope that Nardil will save your life, just as it has saved my own and many others. Nardil (Phenelzine Sulfate) is arguably the most efficacious, yet most underutilized, antidepressant available. It is predominately prescribed for major depression and social anxiety (it is referred to as the “Gold Standard” treatment for social anxiety), but treats a variety of conditions: dysthymia, bipolar depression (BD), panic disorder (PD),, bulimia,post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Nardil has recently even shown promise in treating prostate cancer
Nardil Drug Class
Nardil (Phenelzine Sulfate) belongs to the Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor Class (MAOI) drug class which was developed in the 1950’s. This class of anti-depressants is arguably far superior to any of the newer SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) medications. MAOIs are the original anti-depressants and still the best.
Many doctors have acknowledged that MAOIs are far superior to SSRI’s in treating depression and anxiety. It is thought that this superiority is due to the fact that, unlike SSRI’s, which generally only increase the levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin, MAOIs also increase the levels of dopamine, norepinephrine, and (in Nardil’s case) even GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid). Many MAOI users can confirm that SSRIs are mere “pistols”, while MAOIs are “cannons”. Many patients who trial SSRI’s may have a dopamine deficiency, and therefore receive no benefit from SSRI treatment since SSRIs reduce dopamine levels (possibly via 5HT2C receptor activity). Dopamine is also responsible for motivation, which is why people on MAOIs often claim they feel much more motivated to do things in life.
Due to its mechanism on GABA, Nardil is excellent in reducing social anxiety. Like benzodiazepines (e.g. Valium, Xanax), Nardil increases GABA. Therefore, many people who take Nardil no longer need to take benzodiazepines for anxiety.

Unfortunately, MAOIs are largely under-prescribed by doctors due to concerns and anxiety about their supposed many dietary interactions and drug interactions. However, these concerns stem from misinformation about MAOIs – misinformation that has been disseminated for decades. Unfortunately, many doctors now accept this misinformation as truth. In fact, MAOIs have a good safety profile, and their dietary interactions and drug interactions are relatively small.
It is regrettable that many patients and doctors are missing out on the benefits of MAOI treatment: a patient misses out on using a highly effective treatment, and a well-meaning doctor misses out on seeing his or her patient recover from an otherwise debilitating illness. This site helps patients find doctors that are willing to prescribe Nardil.
In addition to these overinflated safety concerns, the patents have long expired on Nardil. As a result, manufacturing it is no longer very profitable for pharmaceutical companies.
Although start-up side effects can sometimes be troublesome for some people, many long-term users find that Nardil has a smaller side effect profile than SSRI’s and TCA’s, particularly in regard to sexual side effects. Upon commencement, one should be conscious of the fact that it can take up to 8 weeks to start working, and most people require a dose of 60mg. One must be patient with the side-effects: almost all dissipate over time.
The purpose of this site is to share information about a truly efficacious antidepressant that has saved the lives of thousands and cured many of crippling depression and social anxiety. In addition, the misinformation regarding Nardil is also addressed so as to allay people’s concerns. If doctors knew the new information regarding Nardil there is little doubt that many more would happily prescribe it.
