Parnate vs Nardil???

Posted by bleauberry on November 29, 2007, at 18:35:50

It seems like most people here prefer Nardil as the king of antidepressants. At parnate and nardil are both rated much higher than other antidepressants. The people who stopped it did so due to side effects but not lack of effectiveness. Someone said if nardil and parnate had been invented after SSRIs they would probably be viewed as improvements, rather than dinosaurs. A doctor's website said MAOIs would be first line treatment instead of last choice for a close family member.

Anyway, some questions:

Why not much mention of Parnate?

I know Nardil affects serotonin, NE, DA, and GABA. What about Parnate? Same or different? How do they differ?

How do side effects generally vary between the two?

My doc is talking antidepressants, and I figure if I am going to head into the world of side effects again, then I am at least going to get the most bang for the buck. No more fooling around with wanna-be-antidepressants.
