> I generally avoid ? about MAOI's because I have never taken them, so I have not read about them. However I understand there are some that don't have the "cheeze reaction". perhaps they are called reversable MAOI's ? Anyone know about them, are they used in the states ?

Hi James. You probably already know this, but Selegiline at 15mg or less (+ -) is void of the cheeze reaction. The reversible MAOI is Moclobemide. There is another similar one too. The name escapes me. Both are in other countries. Not USA. Moclobemide seems to be the most popular reversible MAOI. No cheeze reaction.

Moclobemide primary inhibits MAOs of serotonin and NE, with about 30% inhibition of dopamine MAO.

It is not available in USA. But if a person can make the initial visit to a Canadian doctor, it can be prescribed and purchased in Canada and brought back to USA. After that initial visit, the doc can also fill out special paperwork that allows the prescription to be filled by mailorder and legally sent across the border. The Canadian doc has to be involved with special Customs paperwork. This wouldn't help you much, because I know you live way far away from Canada. Don't know if it's available in Mexico. I would think it is, but not sure.

The easiest way for someone to get Moclobemide is to order from an overseas mailorder pharmacy. I know of a couple companies that sell it.
