Amoxapine isn't a dopamine *reuptake inhibitor*; it's a dopamine *antagonist*. That's what "blocks dopamine" means.

MAOIs don't "block dopamine." They increase the amount of dopamine available by inhibiting its metabolism.

I took amoxapine for 2 weeks or so, along with Parnate. It made me crave sugar to a point where I was really unfomfortable (must be what drug addicts feel like, I think), so I stopped. No other bad side effets, though, and no interaction with the Parnate.
