Severe side effects are rare but do happen; they include:
- Hypermetabolic syndrome
- Inappropriate ADH secretion
- Glottis edema
- Muscular rigidity
- Changes in blood pressure
- Manic anxiety
- Toxic delirium
- Speech blockade
Despite its effectiveness, Nardil, like other MAOIs, has suffered from a negative reputation as a troublesome drug requiring diet restrictions and associated with varied and extreme side effects. As such, it is mostly used in treatment-resistant mental health conditions. While it is true one will be required to watch their diet to avoid food high in tyramine (aged cheeses, kimchi, smoked fish, etc.) to avoid spikes in blood pressure, the extremeness of diets can be exaggerated, and a doctor can advise you on a comfortable regimen.
Further, its side effects are often less severe than the side effects of modern medications for the same conditions. The drug also has the advantage of not being habit-forming, and patients do not easily build a tolerance to it. Patient reviews praise the drug for its effectiveness and ease of use.
Nardil is an effective treatment for social phobia and other mental health conditions. It may be an option for your treatment. Consult with a certified doctor to get suitable medication and a multimodal personalized treatment plan at Mango Clinic.
