> I have had generalized social anxiety for many years and didnt try any medication until last year. Zoloft worked wonders for me, but after a bad marijuana experience, the Zoloft stopped working. I've tried Prozac, Paxil, Celexa, tricyclics, Buspar, nothing seems to work. I'm starting to talk with my docotr about possibly using an MAOI: specifically, Parnate, Moclobemide, or Marplan. I'm staying away from Nardil due to the weight gain side effect. If anyone has had any experience with these medications, or with recovery from bad drug trips, please help me out. In particular, effectiveness, side effects, and need to strictly adhere to diet. Thanks a lot.

Hi Mark,

Yeah, I certainly know how you feel. Its happened
loads of times to me, I seem to be OK then I have
a bad experience on weed or other and it goes
pear-shaped. I was OK on paxil for a while then went
to Amsterdam and came back worse than ever. Paxil
did work for me (Seroxat over here in UK) until
Amsterdam, I've just gone back on it after being
on moclobemide for 3 months. Moclobemide worked
wonders at first and I felt better than I'd ever
felt before in loads of ways, then it started to
make me worse, more depressed etc. This apparently
happens to some people so it may be good for you.
Very few side effects at all other than sleeplessness
at first (which soon goes)if it works properly.
Phenelzine works very well but has loads of side
effects: inorgasmia, headaches, very strict diet
to name just a few.
Klonopin (clonazepam) is meant to be excellent and
is what I'm after at the moment but I haven't tried
this as yet.

Anyway good luck
