> Thank you for your help and support - it's much appreciated I will attempt to get some communication going between my psychiatrist and my general practioner. I just feel if this psychiatrist was really competent she'd take the time to investigate the possible ramifications of this drug and be willing to invest the time with me to prescribe the "emergency pill". I'm very frustrated by the the degree of ignorance about MAOI's by medical professionals.

Absolutely! Many doctors are afraid of them because they have so many restrictions and ramifications. And they don't take the time to fully understand them. But they are also extremely good drugs for those of us who haven't been helped by anything else. And I'm constantly shocked by how many people I've talked to who get an MAOI prescribed without any type of "emergency" pill. Usually their doctors tell them to go to the hospital if they have a crisis. Well, in my experience that's not necessary if you have a little pill! I take thorazine (only in an emergency, not regularly). I like it because even if my blood pressure hasn't spiked it's still safe to take.

Good luck,
