Thanks for the update on MAOI's. I sort of knew that, but your information is more precise. I was on a low dose of selegeline at one point, found it only moderately helpful at that dose.

No information yet (at least in Wikipedia) on whether Kava can cause MAO-food-phenethylamine drug problems. I've never noticed a headache or a significant BP rise with it, and I take high doses & do use decongestants & eat the proscribed foods regularly. It's a good heads-up. The South Sea Islanders have used it safely for centuries, but then I imagine they don't traditionally eat much aged cheese or sausage!

I like your last statement. Major Depression used to be classed as a psychosis. I'm certainly more or less out-of-touch with reality in a depressive episode.

It can apply to addiction too; doctors would describe me as having concurrent or comorbid disorders, and claim depression & addiction can be diagnosed separately, but I have trouble distinguishing them from "inside". A fellow alcoholic & I, both in recovery, were chatting once, and he said "It's funny: when the craving hits, it's like an altered state of consciousness". Yes. I'm tempted to borrow that line for my signature.


My Meds
-----------
Escitalopram 20 mg
Bupropion XR 75 mg
Diazepam 5 mg tid - weaning
Propranolol 20 mg tid
Robaxin - non-prescribed; weaning
Kava - non-Rx, prn
