Re: interested in START UP s/e's

In reply to Re: Do MAOI's have bad start up s/e's like SSRIs etc? ravenstorm, posted by King Vultan on July 20, 2004, at 8:08:01

I guess what I am trying to determine is if starting on MAOI's is as harsh a start up as starting on SSRI"s. When I started paxil or zoloft I was sick as a dog (even vomitting) for three weeks at least. Foggy headed, nauseaus, headaches etc etc. I know once you are on a med long enough, the start ups usually fade and you are left with some sort of more benign side effects.

Just wondering if MAOI's are as hard to get on as SSRI's.Most people consider tricyclics easier to start on, if they have severe reactions to starting ssris. Unfortunately, once you are on the TCA, you usually have more over all side effects in the long run. So, are start ups for MAOI's more like TCA's or SSRI's. If you are one of those people who goes on meds with relative ease, it will probably be hard for you to give any information.

Thanks!
