Erin, I ditto Elizabeth's sentiments, even if I haven't tried MAOIs myself (the time may be coming though!). They probably have the best reputation for stubborn atypical depression. Keep in mind that there are other ones besides Parnate, too! Hope things go well for you,

> Some other people might be better able to answer this, but my impression is that it's very rare for someone with atypical depression not to do well on MAOIs, even if SSRIs (Paxil, etc.) didn't work. Some people augment the MAOI with a stimulant (such as Ritalin) or a mood stabilizer (lithium, Depakote, Lamictal) or some such if it isn't enough by itself, so that's something to consider as well. (Regarding mood stabilizers, some researchers think that atypical depression is related to bipolar II disorder.)
> Good luck - I hope this med does the trick for you!
