> Hi,
> I was just wondering why MAOIs are considered to be more effective than SSRIs, are there any studies which have proved this?
> Are they also more effective than tryciclics?

> They are not considered to be more effective overall and are rarely used except as a last resort because they have dangerous interactions if somebody takes cheese,alcohol and certain other food items while on them.
> Neither are tricyclices more effective as a rule,although the sedating ones do help people to sleep.
