> That's great to know. I was sort of guessing that it was over stated like everything else.

Yeah. Plus I thought it would take a lot of trouble or bother me to cut out those 4 or 5 foods. It didn't end up taking any trouble at all.

>It's also good to hear from another lifter, and a martial artist at that. Diet and dizziness aside, has anything about MAOI's interfered with your training? How do you feel about them in

Well my libido went super high. So I guess you could say women interfere with my training.

Diet doesn't effect my training at all.
And having a major stimulant+antidepressant effect allowed me to see an immediate 40% increase in weight (I plateaued at 100 pounds on the pec deck, but immediately jumped to 140, increasing 10 pounds a week after, and I'm 6'1" 150 pounds)

>relation to other more conventional/mainstream meds? I have a diagnosis of anergic atypical

I was really afraid of taking an MAOI, but it turned out to be for nothing. It has the best side effect profile (more energy, increased libido) of any med I've taken. But most important is the fact it seems like it will actually work for my depression/anxiety.

>depression with comorbid ADD, anxiety, and mood instability (makes me sound f#cking nuts). Well

Parnate has been shown in studied to be possibly the best drug for anergic depression. Anecdotal evidence would seem to indicate this as well. I havn't heard many people talk about it's anti-anxiety effects, but even a year at the highest doses of Effexor and Paxil did nothing compared to even the first few weeks of the lowest parnate dose. If mood instability means >50% remission of symptoms from time to time, i.e. mood reactivity, that MAOIs would probably be the best choice. Though SSRIs can also work quite well for some. Tricyclics would not be recommended. I think I've heard that the stimulant effects of Parnate might help with ADD, but I can't remember for sure (may just be conjecture).

I wonder if I may be ADD, how can you separate lack of attention related to depression to ADD?
