I agree with you totally, and I'm not ruling MAOIs out. But again, I've had such a horrific history with meds that I'm a little skittish. Especially since those things need two week washout periods before and after. I don't know if I could actually handle that if I ended up having to be on nothing. Interestingly, it seems that my doctor is not ready to turn to the MAOIs yet because of all the hassle with diet and med interactions. I wonder if he had a patient who made a mistake? He's not ruling them out though.
