MAOIS not quite lethal

Indeed, I know they are being prescribed, too! My doctor is an expert psychopharmacologist, and he says that in the 60's people were having the cerebral hemorages and other problems because they didn't know about "the cheese effect". No one had any idea as to why people would suddenly have these deadly events, even thought it could be random-that the drugs themselves were doing it-BUT NOW THEY GET IT, so the events can largely be prevented. However, I understand people were spooked away for awhile and became interested in "safer improvements", like those harmless amphetamines that one could eat like candy to solve anything. But then people got a grip and the MAOIS came back in to use- for apparently they sometimes work when nothing else does and are said to be quite safe when guidelines are followed. Also, apparently doctors are still nervous about patients following the dietary and drug restrictions faithfully, and have keep that in mind when prescribing. So they are rarely the first choice drug. But given the choice between stubborn hell on earth that doesn't respond to other drugs or therapy, suicide, or giving up on good foods and cold medicine for a drug that works wonders to improve life and health- well- which does the critic think is least "lethal"?

No wonder the docs and pharmaceutical people are so excited about developing products like EMSAM! I hope this was just the beginning!

And lethal? Yes, suicide or becoming a helplessly hopeless depressed vegetable sure sound worse than the teeny chance of making a food mistake!! And you can OD on Tylenol , too. Can't single out something like MAOIS for that "overdose" accusation. Also, stress and depression hormones like cortisol are lethal too.

> Well as to them not being prescribed anymore judging by the amount of people on this board who are taking them and being helped by them I would say that you are mistaken.
> And as to them being is depression if left untreated. It's called suicide.
