> Scott do you think that would apply to changing from one MAOI to another? I had a washout of only 2 days after Nardil, before going on Parnate.
I had only a matter of hours with this! No probs but. I can't see any mechanism by which it could cause a big problem....
I sometimes think Parnate has been wasting its time blocking MAO in a different position on the MAOI molecule, when it's already been blocked by Nardil. MAO is a great big 3-D protein after all, so the site of blocking is unlikely to be the same.
