Thanks for the update on MAOI's. I sort of knew that, but your information is more precise. I was on a low dose of selegeline at one point, found it only moderately helpful at that dose.

No information yet (at least in Wikipedia) on whether Kava can cause MAO-food-phenethylamine drug problems. I've never noticed a headache or a significant BP rise with it, and I take high doses & do use decongestants & eat the proscribed foods regularly. It's a good heads-up. The South Sea Islanders have used it safely for centuries, but then I imagine they don't traditionally eat much aged cheese or sausage!

I like your last statement. Major Depression used to be classed as a psychosis. I'm certainly more or less out-of-touch with reality in a depressive episode.

It can apply to addiction too; doctors would describe me as having concurrent or comorbid disorders, and claim depression & addiction can be diagnosed separately, but I have trouble distinguishing them from "inside". A fellow alcoholic & I, both in recovery, were chatting once, and he said "It's funny: when the craving hits, it's like an altered state of consciousness". Yes. I'm tempted to borrow that line for my signature.

My Meds
Escitalopram 20 mg
Bupropion XR 75 mg
Diazepam 5 mg tid - weaning
Propranolol 20 mg tid
Robaxin - non-prescribed; weaning
Kava - non-Rx, prn
