Type of Spiritual Experience
Dysthymia, sometimes also called neurotic depression, dysthymic disorder, or chronic depression, is a mood disorder consisting of the same cognitive and physical problems as in depression, with less severe but longer-lasting symptoms. The concept was invented by Robert Spitzer as a replacement for the term "depressive personality" in the late 1970s.
A description of the experience
Phenelzine (Nardil, Nardelzine) is a non-selective and irreversible monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) of the hydrazine class which is used as an antidepressant and anxiolytic. Along with tranylcypromine and isocarboxazid, phenelzine is one of the few non-selective MAOIs still in widespread clinical use. It is typically available in 15 mg tablets and doses usually range from 30–90 mg per day, with 15 mg every day or every other day suggested as a maintenance dose following a successful course of treatment.
Phenelzine is used primarily in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). Patients with depressive symptomology characterized as "atypical", "nonendogenous", and/or "neurotic" are given phenelzine. The medication is also given to patients who do not respond favorably to first and second-line treatments for depression, or are "treatment-resistant". In addition to being used for major depressive disorder, phenelzine is used for dysthymia, bipolar depression (BD), panic disorder (PD) social anxiety disorder (SAD) bulimia and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Common side effects of phenelzine may include dizziness, blurry vision, dry mouth, headache, lethargy, sedation, somnolence, insomnia, anorexia, weight gain or loss, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, urinary retention, mydriasis, muscle tremors, hyperthermia, sweating, hypertension or hypotension, orthostatic hypotension, paresthesia, hepatitis, and sexual dysfunction (consisting of loss of libido and anorgasmia).
Other side effects may include hypomania or mania, psychosis and acute liver failure, the last of which is usually only seen in people with pre-existing liver damage, old age, alcohol consumption, or viral infection.
