Since "stimulants" and other meds that increase catecholamine or serotonin activity MAY cause a reaction in SOME people, the FDA is required to list all of these medications (even if the VAST majority of these meds are safely combined with MAOIs)

These lists scare people away from a potentially life saving class of medications...Medications that have not only been around for 50+ years, but have also been proven superior to other medications for various psychiatric disorders.

What big issues do you have with it?
