My pdoc doesn't buy it. The research, IIRC, is sparse and possibly conflicting. On the other hand, he was willing to prescribe a sub-therapeutic dose to me, since there didn't appear to be any danger of drug/food reactions, from the single MAOI effect at low doses.

Also an IIRC, I think the effect has only been shown in rats.
