First, before I forget (we're identical in the lethargic dept. Cognitively not there either. But I did remember this). I'm on Parnate, tolerable sides, but not a/d effect yet. You may want to get comfortable in that bed if you decide to try one (MAOI).
What I recently found was an article re: the STAR*D study where they (I believe NIMH) actually reported that MAOI's low result profile is now felt to be, by them, due to inadequate dosing (doses were not therapeutic for a robust response). Interesting, eh? So you may want to rethink that. Its a commitment, but I am cooresponding with 2 people on this board that, while I 've been "talking" to them seem to be responding. Don't exclude it from your list!
Let me know what you find to get up and going. PLEASE! haha I'll do same. Good luck with your decision.
