> > rapid switches (1-8) days for MAOI switches have been reported succesful, yet your doctor should provide you with more info. I googled this for a long time found this study, rapid switch is 1-8 days, not 18, was a typo, i tried to use the source, good luck

I don't think that it is such a good idea to cherry-pick articles to show your doctor. I suffered a major reaction when switching from Nardil to Parnate without a wash-out period. I was in the hospital for three or four days. I was incoherent and didn't know where I was. All I remember is an extreme amount of pain as they inserted a catheter into my penis. Otherwise, I was oblivious to my surroundings. It is likely that it was serotonin syndrome.

Nardil -> MAOI

1 day is too short.
8 days might be okay.
10 days is often used.
14 days is safe.

I suppose it's possible that your individual physiology would allow you to switch directly From Marplan to either Parnate or Nardil. I am not aware of any way to test for this.

For what it's worth, my guess is that one can switch from Parnate to Nardil faster than from Nardil to Parnate. I don't know enough about Marplan to be able to comment on this.
