> Having gone down the path of SSRI's (Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Wellbutrin and various combo's) I'm considering MAOI's. Wondered what sort of success people have had with them?

James here....

You might try meds that effect nor-e such as TCA's, MAOI's and Effexor. Dirty meds like TCA's and MAOI's often work better than clean SSRI's. In England the MAOI's are considered first line treatment, even with the advent of SSRI's, so people can take these meds w/o incident. However,
no matter how many people say they have little or no problem with diet, be advised that one significant hypertensive event can solve all your problems. No more depression, diets to worry about, or life.

In terms of risk, TCA's and Effexor are safer. Have you tried augmenting thyroid ? Pinodol ?
TCA + SSRI or SNRI. or naltraxolone + AD's ?
