Allison--You might want to consider one additional medication if you decide to go the MAOI route. That is pindolol. I don't think it is turning out to do much in the long run when coupled with an SSRI, but it seems to cause both SSRIs and MAOIs to start working faster. Right now I am combining nardil and serzone, but if this is not successful for me, I will substitute pindolol for the serzone. I brought it up with my pdoc and she thought it was a good idea, but I cannot take all three meds together because of a probable hypotensive reaction.

This is from psychobabble tips:
"It is interesting that both in the Artigas et
al. study and the replication, there was one
patient taking an MAOI. Both of these patients
showed a dramatic effect of pindolol addition."

Anyway, just another option. That way you might get much earlier effects from the MAOI, and not have that really hard waiting period.

Good luck with what you (and your doc) decide, Shellie
