> I'm rather surprised that they were so...absolute about it, that they claimed that they could be so certain. Did they say anything more specific about *why* the other drugs supposedly wouldn't work for you? Or just make vague remarks about your metabolism?
> Parnate works for social anxiety as well as Nardil, and it also seems to have less risk of causing weight gain, a side effect which is very common with Nardil. FWIW, I take Parnate, and it has worked fairly well for me, although I have not responded fully to any of "the usual stuff," so in my case it is only part of a much more extensive treatment regimen. I hope it works well for you.

Yeah maybe my pdoc assumes I care about weight gain (Im a woman), even though I could tolerate it given a drug *actually* works. But he didnt say anything about anything. He says very little in general. He is reticent, sort of stern, and stoic. He is very hard for someone with social phobia to talk to, otherwise Id ask him questions, but my mind goes purely blank. Im just thankful he is willing to try MAOIs because I know many doctors have a blanket no-MAOI policy. Im glad its working fairly well for you (alongside other things) and I hope it works for me too.

Just to speculate more...Ive read that parnate is not fully irreversible like Nardil, so maybe its somewhat safer. Maybe hes concluded my issue is not serotonin based given my non-response to multiple SSRIs, and Nardil has a greater effect on serotonin.
