I don't understand why someone would claim that MAOIs have a 99% success rate. This does not sound remotely accurate to me. (What would "success rate" even mean? Statistically significant improvement? Complete remission?)

I have never seen an article in a peer-reviewed journal stating that this is true. I have also never seen reliable statistics showing a 90% "success rate", again, whatever this means. I find such statements puzzling.

MAOIs can be very powerful and helpful antidepressants. But I have also known more than a few people who have gone on full trials of MAOIs, only to either d/c due to side effects, or fail to respond altogether.

Cecilia, have you ever tried Lithium? I didn't see that listed on your big list o' meds.
