Well, if you've lost weight lately (and grief will do it), your doctor might hesitate to put you on Parnate. It definitely squashes your appetite. I had to remind myself to eat...often. Having structured meal times in the day helped.

But it also might be that he doesn't have a lot of experience with MAOI's. When SSRI's became available, MAOI's were left by the wayside for a bit. Now they are making a comeback because they act so differently on atypical depression than many other things available. When I moved and switched pharmacies, they had to order it 'specially for the first few months because they weren't used to stocking it.

Doesn't hurt to ask about it. It's not for everyone and I would pursue other SSRI's and possibly tricyclics first.
