Five days was the shortest washout period I ever took from a non-MAOI to MAOI. (I once waited only two days before switching from Marplan to Parnate.)

> also what to look out for if the switch is to qucik? serotonin syndrome? been off zoloft for 2 weeks and remeron for 5 days. remeron has no affinity for 5ht1.

The serotonin syndrome would be the thing to watch out for, yes. (It has been reported with MAOI-Remeron combinations.)
