It was basically a lucky coincidence that tranylcypromine was available in germany and phenelzine in Belgium. There are other European countries who have no irreversible MAOIs at all.

As I said in the post above, I have never had trouble getting reimbursements for drugs bought in Belgium. That may be due to the fact that they were usually precribed by psychiatrists here in Belgium, but I have also used German prescriptions, in particular for phenelzine, because the psychiatrists here in Belgium refused to prescribe it ("we haven't been using MAOIs since 20 years ago").

Hi, thanks for your answer. Youre right. Its my 8th day now, so its not possible to say anything about long term succes. For now its working a bit but nothing that can be distinguished from placebo effects. Side effects are minimal, some nervousness, headache and confusion. My main concern isnt depression, its more kind of neurotic depression with slight social deficits and prominent physical and psychic anxiety. Means i can handle social situations, but i hate them because im struggeling with myself when talking to people. My energy level is almost normal i think, maybe i could be a bit more alert, but its not that im sleeping all the time or lying in bed. I will see, but i have big hopes on nardil as ssris, snris and many other options failed to brake my inner self-destruction.
