I know that I'm going off the orginal thread but I've always been curious about this. If I recall, you have responded well to Parnate or Nardil, correct? I wonder if there's any correlation or pattern, that people who have (previously) done well on an irreversible MAOI, do very badly on the reversible ones like Moclobemide. Any ideas?
