I understand that Moclobemide is inferior to the irreversible MAOIs (generally speaking), but it can be effective for some, has a different side effect profile and may be better than SSRIs for apathy.

Your logic is good. I would try moclobemide, too, were I in your place. I did when I was in my 30s. Nothing good came of it. In fact, it made me feel worse that any other drug I tried. It took 2-3 weeks after its discontinuation for the horror to dissipate. I got a wonderful antidepressant kick from moclobemide for the first few days at 300 mg/day. You can go up to 1200 mg/day. I haven't seen any clinicians go higher than that. The most important thing to consider is that you are not me. Moclobemide was a horrible, horrible drug for me. It left me in a fetal position on the couch and audibly groaning for hour on end. For you, moclobemide might be your miracle drug. I gave you some good information to work with.

May you remain different from me in your response to moclobemide...
