Hi Mat,

Thanks for your answer. I quit Moclobemide today because it was
not effective and the side effects were intolerable. Before I tried
Paxil, which was effective but gave me the famous "ejaculatory delay"
side effect (reason why I tried to switch to Moclobemide). If you have
no side effects on Moclobemide, try a higher dose - maybe it will work.
If nothing happens, try a tricyclic, a conventional MAOI or one of the
"outsiders" (Wellbutrin, Remeron, Tianeptine or Edronax). The important
thing is too have a good shrink you can find the right medication for
your case. The one who prescribed me the moclo was a total jerk - I suffer
from recurrent agitated depression, for which the drug is contraindicated!
One other thing: Has your doctor checked you for physical diseases, such as
tyrhoid and endocrine disorders, which may cause depression? I'm told that
if you have such a disease, any antidepressant is a waste of time - the only
way to get rid of the depression is to treat the disease. I hope I'm not boring
you with so much chat - it's because I have a deep sympathy for anyone who, like
me, is suffering from this horrible disease. Maybe we'll get better someday and
have a party. Wish you all the best!
