HELP-cognitive impairment result of MAOI poopout

Posted by rose45 on June 23, 2019, at 11:38:43

Please,please help if you can as I am becoming suicidal with the problem of cognitive impairment, which Im sure must have been caused by being on 2 maois: Nardil for 20 yrs and Parnate for the past 5 yrs, which are no longer working.

I can barely function at the moment, and have overwhelming anxiety.My GP has given me some valium, and I take a small dose every night, but my memory is practically non-existent, and I can barely do shopping and prepare food any more. My mind sees to just not work.
Ive already posted the beginnings of this on this on

But nothing has improved and I see no hope for regaining my mind. Has anyone else had this problem? Am I correctly assuming that this has been caused by the mAOIs which were a miracle as long as they worked.... I did have the same problem when I was first put onto nardil, during the first few weeks while the dosage was being increased I just couldnt look after myself, totally clumsy, couldnt do simple tasks which had been easy in the past etc. But that all disappeared once it started working at 60 mg after 8 weeks.

Im now seeing a private psychiatrist who has put me on olanzapine, starting with a very small dose, but I dont have much hope in this, because when nardil stopped working 5 yrs ago, I was put on seroquel, which just made me feel more suicidal, and it was only once i convinced the nhs psychiatrist (here in the UK) to put me on parnate, that I became fine again within 3 weeks.

Has anyone else reacted in this way to the maois pooping out on them? PLEASE PLEASE respond if you can.

I am very sensitive to medication and have always suffered from depression after operations where I had to take pain killers many years ago
