Duplicating an MAOI (safer/effective/possible(?))

Posted by jaby on July 14, 2003, at 10:50:00

My dr. says that he thinks he can duplicate the effects of an MAOI without the dietary resctriction by using high doses of say effexor (5-HT & NE) and a stimulant (DA), or other combinations you can imagine, that would increase levels of the three monoamines like an MAOI does.

This is obviously done through a much different mechanism. I wondering what you guys think of this. Seems to me that it would only work from a conceptual standpoint. Otherwise people would have the same reaction to nardil, parnate, selegiline, etc. I would think they all have their own additional subtle mechanisms.
