In reply to 2nd MAOI after the first one failed?, posted by Mark25 on November 12, 2011, at 12:12:21

Nardil can and does work where Parnate fails. That is a S**tload of clonazepam! I used up to 5mg while I was waiting for Nardil to kick in the first time. Phenelzine is the "BOMB" for social anxiety and atypical depression. In my opinion it should be 2nd tier and not last resort for this diagnosis. It is a bloody crime that it is not available in your country. The stuff saved my life more than once! You can probably get all of the worthless SSRIs you want! Sorry! The MAOIs work where all others fail. I have been preaching about it on here for years. I did have 2 failed Parnate trials. Google some of my posts. This S**T works!
Treatment resistant, atypical, double depression with social anxiety.
Nardil + clonazepam
