> Wow, you and Larry Hoover in one thread. Nice to hear you are doing well and made it back.

Thank you! It's nice to be back.

> Why no tca's for anxiety? Suprised they only push ssri's??? Some of us just don't do well with those drugs. What about an MAOI? I thought nardil was good of anxiety and panic?

These are two excellent suggestions, but...

I tried imipramine in the past, which was at one time the panic drug to which all others are compared. Even using the "start low and go slow" approach, unfortunately it didn't help at all and made my physical symptoms much worse (sweating, palpitations).

Nardil seemed to help somewhat and was more tolerable than both the TCAs and SSRIs for me. I can't find a doc who is willing to go there again. I did have a mild hypertensive reaction to it which I could not attribute to diet or med interactions. Plus, it had memory effects (difficulty finding the right words) which were much obvious than Klonopin. Overall, just not worth it for me.

Both of these trials were when I was certifiably young too (mid-20's).

Regards,

Matt
