It's not reuptake per-se, but monoamine oxidase type A metabolises melatonin. Blocking the MAO-A would lead to higher levels of melatonin. I think the disruption happens in the fact that it would likely be higher at all times rather than just at night (daytime napping?). Not sure entirely, but the balance with other monoamines would likely impact sleep rhythms too.

As far as MAOIs, I am in Ontario Canada (few hours to your north). I would likely need to find a psychiatrist a bit closer - but thanks for the offer. I also pay out of pocket for meds, which would likely make nardil prohibitively expensive for me. Contrary to popular belief, we don't have universal health care in Canada. The growing number of people without workplace benefits pay 100% out of pocket.

I'm not sure why some people respond (apparently) well to SSRIS.
