I might give the MAOI a try. It's just that the washout period practically guarantees that I will have to endure weeks without meds. That's scary. Also, I haven't heard great things about them anyway, like Nardil causing massive weight gain and flawless chemical castration. I know I should n't be weighing these things against my life, but when you finally do get on a drug and pick up up 80lbs and go numb in your genital area, it just adds to the misery - especially if the drug doesn't work. I guess I'm just afraid of drugs anymore. They have led to much misery and I don't know how I can last a long time on any of them. When I look back, I didn't take any drug for more than a year before ultimately tapering off in a desperate attempt to reduce misery caused by side effects.

What exactly is opiate therapy? That causes me to imagine being stuck in a methadone-type clinic somewhere. Is there a website or something where I can check it out?
