Hi Kath,

Thanks for the support, I really appreciate it. Yes, there are other MAOI's like Nardil. Parnate would be the next closest, and then there's Marplan. They are all considered to be too dangerous to prescribe to me after what happerned. There is a safer one called Moclobemide. They won't even prescribe that one to me.

They don't really know what caused the PRES (basically brain swelling from blood pressure changes). There are 2 possibilities in my mind. 1.) I was withdrawn off Nardil too quickly. 2.) I had a hypertensive crisis as a result of something I ate, or else just a spontaneous hypertensive crisis.

I have plain old unipolar treatment resistant depression. It has only ever improved on Nardil.
