>I just can't imagine being on such a heavy duty medecine like that for the rest of my life. I mean, does anyone really take these things for decades, or does it always end up bad in the end? I also can't imagine being on a super-restrictive diet for a very long time. The last thing I need is a stroke. I wonder, if the MAOIs had remained a first line treatment if the drug companies would have found safe versions by now.

Thank you for the website.



Bob,
As a person that has been on Nardil plus augmentation for the good part of the last decade, I am having a hard time with your thinking on MAOIs. There is a school of thought that a person can not even be considered treatment resistant without a couple of five week trials on Nardil and Parnate. Without Nardil I would not be living right now. I do not know the history of your depression, but if it is atypical with social anxiety, an MAOI should have been the 2nd tier medication trial. It is not a last resort, it is the gold standard that other medications are compared to. The side effects and diet restrictions are way overblown. I plan on being on Nardil with various augmentations the rest of my life.
Wishing you Well,
Jedi
