Most of MAOI side effects are tolerable and/or go away in time. Like any drug, there are some SE's that are deal-breakers. This is an individual decision between a patient and doctor. And of course you know that everyone does not respond alike to meds.

It is not a decision between a patient and his doctor. Doctor refused to prescribe, and patient is acting on own decision.

I neither offered nor implied any disrespect to anybodys decision. It was a message of caution and a stated personal position.

With respect to the issue of side effects, tollerence levels et al. if you have followed the thread then you will find that my position has been that each individuals situation is unique, being tied to so many other factors, that an overall generalisation is not possible. However even given the previus statement the inherent risks of a drug that has so many side effects that are directly attributible to reactions with a large number of substances. Substances contained in (But not measured or controlled) in a wide variety of foods, drinks, medications and natural substances. has a greater risk factor than a drug that mearly has a large number of side effects as a direct result of the actions of that drug. In the latter case the severity can be moderated by changing the dosage to allow normalisation/adaption of the body's processes. However in the first situation the type, level of reaction is dependant on almost random, and hard to control external factors.

My stated position remains, he is welcome to his action but care and monitoring systems should be put into place prior to comencement, as he is not doing this with the doctor.

The direction to the relevant web site was to provide information in order to be able to make a more informed decision. That decision being based on the impact that use of it will have on personal lifestyle/conditions.
