I mean nutrients, vitamins, herbals, and supplements.

I went to a psychologist, before the drugs (except for caffeine). She kind of "diagnosed" a mild depression, and she arranged for me to see a doctor, who then prescribed a SSRI.

But the talk therapy was not intense enough to expect much effect. I mean that once of twice a months is not enough.

Yeah, I suppose anyone is at risk of responding to MAOIs the way you did, but we never can predict that.

I am of the opinion that the approach to treating mental disorders should be multi-modal. You should use psychopharmacology in addition to psychotherapy for best effects. Some drugs can even facilitate psychotherapy. And of course you should address vitamin and mineral deficiencies if you have them. Hormones too.

> But you could have reacted the way I did. You never know. I think it is good that other meds are tried first. I think the first thing if somebody is initially depressed should be testing for nutrient deficiencies. Then therapy to see if history and surroundings contribute to the problem. If both can be anwered with "no", you can then try meds. And not right away MAOI. Just my two cents!
> > If anything, I regret that I have been unable to try MAOIs, and that I have taken so long before I tried my first TCA. I have mixed feelings about reboxetine (Edronax). It was helpful at the time, but I now have "tardive" depersonalisation due to it.
