Hi Mat. I just finished reading a lot of stuff on Moclobemide. It is used successfully for social phobia. Seemed like there were more clinical studies for that than for depression. Anyway, it has been used frequently for tht purpose and is generally very effective though generally not quite as robust as the real MAOIs. And as I mentioned in my previous post, the step up from 600mg to 900mg makes a huge difference according to anecdotal evidence in the field. Some go as high as 1200mg.

As far as your starting dose, a good rule of thumb is take what's bearable (75mg? 150mg? 300mg?). Get used to any side effects for a few days before increasing the dose. Moclobemide by the way can be cut or split into smaller pieces for custom dosing.
