> Has anyone taken Parnate for social phobia?

I don't have generalized social phobia, but I do have an anxiety disorder of some sort (overlap of panic disorder, social phobia, and generalized anxiety, maybe) and have taken Parnate.

> If so just a few questions: Is it better than Nardil for social phobia?

No, in my experience Nardil was definitely better for general and social anxiety.

> Does it generally work better than the SSRIs for social phobia?

They haven't been compared directly, but my hunch is yes.

>Do either Parnate or Nardil cause weight gain?

Nardil: yes, very frequently.

Parnate: no.

I just started taking a third one, Marplan, to see how it will do; so far no sugar cravings.

>Finally, how closely do you have to follow the dietary restrictions? Can I drink beer!?

I've posted my standard rant about MAOI diets a number of times and won't repeat it here -- look in the old MAOI threads if you're interested. (Not trying to blow you off, but it's rather long.)
