> Much education is needed so that clinicians will not avoid trying patients on it when other meds just dont work. The benefits FAR outweigh the risks in many cases! We dont withhold the toxic cancer drugs from patients who need them as the only treatment available to extend life. Mental illness requires the same aggressive treatment sometimes.

Since it works for you witout severe untoward reaction, it's a wonderful drug.

No we don't withhold (some) toxic compounds in cancer therapy. But we are cautious about using them. We also withdrawl some drugs that have non fatal toxicities: thalidomide and fenfluramine.

I know you're venting, but just playing the devil's advocate...

Besides, have all other meds failed? Have all the SSRIs been tried? other newer antidepressants? Have they been augmented with Synthroid or pindilol or stimulants or... This may or may not be safer than an MAOI but sounds like it would cause less physician anxiety and hassle for you (in the long run).
