Many people fear MAOI's....

Posted by TylerJ on March 10, 2006, at 10:40:12

I've noticed that a lot of Babbler's are afraid of MAOI's, unfortunately, do to bad information that just isn't true. True they can dangerous if combined with Tyramine,(hypertensive crisis) but stick to the diet (which is not hard to do) and you should be fine. I know there are other very good antidepressants out there, I just don't want people to miss out on MAOI efficacy because of fear that is usually based on misinformation and false rumors.
MAOI's are particularly useful in treatment of Major depression with atypical features. They also have significant efficacy in anxiety disorders, such as social phobia and panic disorder with agoraphobia and OCD.
They also (Most of the time) work more quickly than other depressants...I always hated that 4-6 wk. wait. For me, parnate worked in 1 wk. And when they work..WOW it's a great experience, that feels wonderful! With ssri's, snri's, TCA's I never even came close to feeling this good. I always told my doc I want something that I can actually feel...finally Parnate, and yes you can actually feel it working. Please, no hard feelings to anyone who refuses to try an MAOI, just trying to be helpful and help others find what I have found. And Yes, I know...just because it works for me DOES NOT mean it'll work for everyone...But if you are still suffering and fed up with the other meds, it's worth a try!
