The older non-selective MAOIs are better for anxiety than moclobemide, particularly Nardil. Other options include Lyrica, Neurontin, Anafranil and even BuSpar. I don't mean to cast a shadow over your trial, but moclobemide really is a pretty poor anxiolytic. If you're worried about addiction/dependence with benzos you could try alternating it with Lyrica every few months to allow your benzo receptors to re-grow (I don't know if this actually works, but it's something I'd like to try).

I think the UK and Australian versions of Nardil are pretty close to the original formulation (some people have imported the UK version into the US), so aren't affected by the new formulation controversy. The 'new Nardil' formula still works for many people though, just some who had been taking the old formula for years said they found the new one less effective.
