Yeah, that's a good example. Another example is treating premature ejaculation with SSRIs.

If I read her post correctly, I think Stephanie wanted assurance that her doc could prescribe a drug that is unapproved for ANY condition in the US.
Sort of like the situation with moclobemide, which is not approved for use in the US for anything at all (depression or otherwise). I have asked a physician and been told
that he could prescribe it anyway - the difficulty then becomes obtaining it. She wants a more concrete quote/example/reference than my say-so...I think.
