> You mentioned TCA's before MAOI's. Why do doc's feel this is the correct order? It's not like TCA's are without great side effects. I refuse to ever consider one, if offered, because of the weight issue. Even MAOI's carry that risk, but not as much as tricyclics.

While TCAs can have serious side effects, they don't have the potential for hypertensive crisis that exist with MAOIs. Also the weight gain issue isn't so clearcut. I gained weight while on Nardil and have lost weight while on Nortriptyline.
