Thanks Tom, very helpful. I forgot to ask you, how long does marplan take to work? In my case, Nardil took 8 painful weeks, whereas Parnate took only 2 or 3 weeks. Would I have to go off parnate for 2 weeks before starting on marplan?

I consulted a psychiatrist who is supposedly expert in maois - He suggested I could try nardil again, which I thought was a strange idea, since I had been on it for over 20 yrs when it stopped working.. he didnt say much about marplan - I suppose because it was taken off the market for a while, fewer people are taking it, and maybe there is a risk they will take it off again ??? He also suggested that I could try a low dose of olanzapine for sleep, but I had such an awful experience on seroquel, I dont like the idea of taking another anti-psychotic.... its so hard to know what to do. Its easy for psychiatrists to make suggestions, and say try this or that, but when I am unwell, I am totally non-functional and suicidal and I just cant bear to go through that again - also people who have helped in the past, including my family, got pretty fed up with it,when I was finally switched to parnate one year ago and I couldnt ask them for help again.
