If you're looking for someone who has experienced the same as you on Moclobemide, you found him.

I read up a lot on Moclobemide before trying it. I was so impressed. Its supposed lack of side effects. Its supposed benefit in all subtypes of depression. Its lack of sexual side effects. Prosexual effects sometimes. I mean, on paper it looks like a miracle drug. When reading about the side effects, worsened depression was mentioned as a possibility in less than 1% of clinical trial patients. Anxiety too. Exactly as you described.

I think that 'less than 1%' is a bit inaccurate. There are two of us from that 1% right here. Come on. Makes me wonder how accurate those clinical studies are sometimes. Anyway, yes, me too...more depressed, a restless gritting the teeth kind of anxiously angry feeling. Yuck! And it gave me bad sexual probs to boot. Totally unexpected. Totally disappointing. I was no where near being cured previously, but I was a whole lot better, and I'm just trying to regain lost ground now. Moclobemide really set me back. I wonder if I can even return to where I was before. Hey, one good thing though, Moclobemide has a very short halflife with only a two day washout period. I've already said 'see-ya' to that drug. It's a miracle drug to someone else, but not me.
