Robert You describe your situation so articulately. I contacted Dr Ken Gillman a few years ago, he of psychotropical research (sic). He's an expert in serotonin toxicity and has had more success prescribing tranylcypromine (Parnate) than anything else. He KNOWS what is safe and effective and finds it frustrating that so much misinformation abounds. Many doctors are afraid to prescribe MAOIs because they think they cause hypertension, whereas in reality they cause hypotension at the effective dose, unless you eat blue cheese spread with Marmite or Icelandic fermented shark, sleuced down with Black Death. I'm about to start mirtazapine after being on Nardil for years. My reason is: while Nardil worked for dep and anx better than anything else I've tried, it didn't quite cut it. The NZ guidelines that my Dr follows have a red square beside the Nardil/mirtazapine combo, meaning very dangerous, so he won't let me do it. Ken KNOWS the combo is safe and effective, but if I want to try it I would have to lie to my Dr until the supply of Nardil ran out. Polypharmacy gives so many opportunities not available in monopharmacy, if there be such a word. About 1 in 4 people will suffer dep and/or anx, in their life so I think my Dr should be more conscientious. He should read the literature like we do. This is not a rare condition we're talking about, and the suffering is very great. I thought a doctor had a calling to save lives and alleviate suffering. Instead doctors are opting for an easier life-style so that they can avoid stress ... rant ... rant
Best wishes
Fred
