In reply to MAO's: why do doctors avoid them?, posted by floatingbridge on August 4, 2009, at 22:53:22
Hard to say. Maybe some docs feel it's best to exhaust all other option due to the potential for adverse reactions?
It reminds me of my Nardil experience back in 1989.... woke up coughing, half asleep and took 2 teaspoons of cough syrup..... woke up in the E.R. and my p/doc stopped in to see me the next mourning and said "we're stopping Nardil"!!!
It was the weirdest feeling I have ever experienced, conscious, yet totally out of it.
2 weeks later and I was on clomipramine. Maybe some docs have had some bad experiences with patients and avoid prescribing Mao's.
