benzos, MAOI's and the experience of anxiety

Posted by gardenergirl on January 14, 2004, at 19:49:30

Hey all,
I am on Nardil (45 mg, considering upping to 60mg)for atypical depression. Through therapy I have also found that I seem to have a great deal of anxiety, particularly in situations when I perceive I am being evaluated. Since I am a grad student, this poses a problem and results in serious procrastination.

I mentioned this to my doc, and he suggested a benzo. My question is this: if I am mostly unaware of my anxiety, except by observing my procrastination behavior, will an anti-anxiety such as a benzo really help?

I truly do not feel anxious, but I can accept that anxiety is what's inhibiting my performance. So if I don't feel anxious, will I feel an effect from a benzo or something to add to the Nardil?
