> Andrew, thanks for the info. I've been taking kava on and off for a while, and you are saying that it's a MAO-B inhibitor? Am I interpreting correctly? I did read in a book that kava is similar in action to Klonopin. BTW has anyone gotten sex urges after taking kava?
Pharmacopsychiatry 1998 Sep;31(5):187-92

Inhibition of platelet MAO-B by kava pyrone-enriched extract from Piper
methysticum Forster (kava-kava).
more on Kava:

Kava reduced my social anxiety similarly to Klonopin. Perhaps not as much, but without as much tiredness or negative cognitive effect (may be having some of that with Klonopin, fairly subtly). I am taking both now in moderation, attempting to get good efficacy with minimal side effects from either. Though they might be synergistically increasing the sedation effect.

No particular sex urges due to Kava. More morning wood recently, but I haven't been keeping careful notes.

peace and health,
