I should make clear that no one who saw me was prepared to say I
was in a manic state, but it was suggested. I certainly had some
interactions with friends that I guess left them scratching their
heads. I have to admit, the idea of experiencing mania just
once intrigues me, as I know it shoudn't. I'm definitely on the
lookout, though. If tranylcypromine is my next choice, that may
be a real concern. A big dose of Parnate is an awful lot like
taking a small dose of amphetamine, and if my response to Parnate
is even _better_ than selegiline moodwise, yeah, it could be
interesting. No way to know for sure.

I agree MAOIs are under-utilized, not that I'm particularly psyched
about having to take one. I'll miss certain things, I'm sure, once
I can't eat or drink them anymore. I'm scared sometimes I'll get
in a accident and somebody will shoot me up with something
sympathomimetic (still gotta get that bracelet). I can see why no
one would want to prescribe an MAOI anymore than one would be jumping
for joy to have to take one, but the fact remains they work well for
some, including me, and may be the only thing that works.

C'est la vie.
