> Is this really horrible? What are the reactions/ side effects? If so, is there anything you can take to help? I found Effexor withdrawal to be relatively easy because I substituted another SSRI at the end. Is there anything like that to help with going off of an MAOI?

I did not withdrawal to get off,but i went through a parnate withdrawal for half a week due to my pharmacy running out,and for me it was a nightmare,i kept falling asleep,horrid nightmares,and tingling in my head and feet.

These sympoms slowly disappreaed totaly upon re introduction of the med.I will say this however,i think the severity of withdrawal will rely on a few things,first i was one of those on a high dose of the med,i also wasnt using much with it,like a benzo or other anxiety agent.

I believe it might be easier for those on more common lower doses,especialy for those who use it with a benzo etc,this way your not relying on a single med for stablitity.I also went cold without any.Since then i have dropped to a normal dose,put aside my benzo fear and now since using a benzo as well i am able to use a much lower dosage of the med thepruticaly.I never ever ever want to go through the nightmare i did.My doc had to tell me something i already knew,STOP being scared to use the benzo,and shes right,the brain is complex so it makes sense a med or two with different actions are more likly to be beneficial than a single one,and i am actualy doing better on the lower dose of parnate with the klono,...well for now anyway.
