Hi Dwight,

Unfortunately, Marplan is probably the least researched of the available MAOIs, so there's not much out there on its use in social anxiety per se. While I've heard that some doctors think that Marplan is in general a "weaker" med than Nardil, I've also encountered people who claim that Marplan has worked better for them than either Nardil or Parnate (for depression / anxiety / social phobia). I saw one study from the late 1980s claiming that Marplan seemed to work well in cases of "heightened interpersonal sensitivity", which I take to be a feature in at least certain types of social anxiety. As an MAOI, one would expect that it would work pretty well, though it's always hard to predict individual responses!


> I take Nardil. Does Marplan work as well as Nardil for Social anxiety?
