Try to find a psychiatrist associated with a hospital, or a psychiatrist that has the reputation of being progressive. Try asking your current psychiatrist if s/he can recommend another doc..just doing that may make him/her think again about not prescribing a safe/non-narcotic/non-addictive med like Nardil or Parnate. Being only 20yrs old, you will respond better to MAOIs (in terms of side-effects) Your doc SHOULD be pleased that you are taking an active role in your medical therapy.

And don't forget to make it well known that it is irresponsibe for your doc to withhold a potentially life saving/changing med just because s/he has "never prescribed it."

After being on 2 SSRIs, a SNRI, and a SSRI + combo, Any competent psychiatrist should consider a trial of a MAOI, especially if social anxiety is prominant.
