> Reading about ECT convinced me the modern form of it, providing it is done correctly and you are properly oxygenated is safe. Definitely safer than MAOIs. Even though Im on Parnate, I still view ECT as medically safer than MAOI therapy.

If ECT is so safe, then why is the medical establishment not advocating ECT right of the bat for many patients and forgoing drugs altogether. Why can't people just get ECT treatments at regular intervals for the rest of their lives and forget about drugs? Seems like that would be a viable option if the treatment was that safe, but I just don't hear about it being done.

Why are you taking an MAOI, if you believe ECT is a better option?
