MAO vs Adderall w/ Effexor

I've done both - there is a big difference in how they work. Effexor is a reuptake inhibitor - so the background level of NE and SE go up - but every where. With the MAOI it only goes up where your brain is using it.

My hunch, reading between the lines, is your doc is afraid of MAOIs (in which case you need to find one with a back bone) and thinks this combo is equivelent - it isn't.

One thing I do know is that MAOIs don't poop out, but effexor/stimulents can over time. I also think there are much less side effects with MAOIs (as long as you don't have problems with the diet).
