Hi Damian,

Before going to an MAOI, I would still suggest you try Clomipramine first. It would be no where near as sedating & have half as much of the anti-muscarinic side effects(Dry mouth, constipation, memory problems) & half as much Alpha-1 NE problems(Orthastatic Hypotension & fast heartbeat) & is alot more serotoninergic.

If you do go with an MAOI, Ace has the best advice coupled & would be able to tell you what Australian stuff you can & can't eat i.e: You could eat pizza from pizza hut, but pizza from a proper pizza shop can be very bad.

Parnate is mostly for Atypical depression. Worst side effects are insomnia, hyper- & hypotension.
Nardil is mostly for Anxious depression. Worst side effects are weight gain & hypotension.
Failure on one doesn't mean you shouldn't bother with the other.

Cheers,
Panda.
