Canadian doc, moclobemide, serzone.

Posted by JohnL on June 13, 1999, at 6:52:42

What a wonderful trip it was to see a doc in Canada. The clinic, downtown Montreal, filled with street people, seemed out of place among the fancy skyscrapers and outdoor mall-like shops. Doc was first class, like the ones we read about on the net, knew all the pharmacology tips, tricks of the trade. Most impressive. The city makes USA seem like a 3rd world country, and the doc put all my docs to shame. I was surprised to find he has many patients doing very well on Serzone, as I've heard only bad about Serzone. His trick, he claims, is to start at 25mg/day and move up by 25mg every four days, low and slow. The drug apparently behaves strangely if approached aggressively. Interesting and useful for any Serzone people reading this, however he claims success with nearly all meds by using the same general approach of low and slow, always cutting the minimum starting dose in half. He also went the extra mile to arrange with a pharmacy and customs to have my refills mailed to me in USA legally. The 5 hour drive (one-way) was worth every mile of it and then some. Though I won't have to go back for a whole year, I almost wish I did. Haven't even taken my first dose of the med he prescribed for me (Moclobemide), but I hope it is equally as uplifting as this visit to a Canadian doctor was. Don't hold your breath for Moclobemide in the USA though, its patent expires very soon, and its manufacturer will not spend the enormous amount of money for FDA approval for what will soon be a drug classified as generic. For any of us though that find a way to try it, by a visit to Canada or through an overseas mailorder, the price should come down. Considering the exchange-rate, I got a two month supply for $89. Can't complain about that. Again though, I just hope this MAOI does what I need it to do. JohnL.
