Thanks for all your support everyone. Without the Nardil, my depression is worsening daily. My pdoc will not EVER prescribe a MAOI for me again, nor would any other pdoc. My pdoc wants me to go on Zoloft, which is totally useless. I've tried Zoloft and most of the other SSRI's, and they usually worsen things, but have never improved my symptoms. Nardil, on the other hand, was a miracle drug for me.

So my question is what would be the implications of me "self-treating" myself with an MAOI? Supply is not an issue. Would my pdoc fire me as a patient, or have me hospitalized as a danger to myself? I mean, many pdocs continue to treat and monitor patients with addictions to illicit drugs, how would this be different?.

I know that this would be incredibly risky given what happened to me previously on Nardil. But life is not worth living the way I am now, so I feel the risk is justified as the alternative would really only be suicide.

I really feel like these are my only choices right now. I'd like to hear other people's opinions though.
