For a couple hour it is. Then it wears off and you're back where you started. I think it creates a horrible psychological effect. I'm strongly pro-drugs, but I hate the idea of being chained to a bottle and needing to take a pill every couple hours. If I'm taking drugs every few hours, it should because I want to take drugs, not because I need to take drugs.Is moclobemide better for dysthymia than parnate
I bet none of them are recent. Even the DR that conducted one of the positive studies often referred to later confirms there is a real risk of serotonin syndrome and implies this combination should only be used in patients that have failed with other drugs and ECT.The point of the combo is the Moclobemide potentates the SSRI, with minimal danger of SS. (dosage)
You will find multiple papers endorsing this combination, the mainstream view is its dangerous, which is misinformed.
However, its generally not recommended because overdose of the combo can result in death quite easily, so for safety of suicidal patients its avoided.
I don't see why not though you should still ask a doctor. Not sure if it would be so efficient though. Moclobemide seems pretty useless for a lot of people. Do you have success with it ?
Yeah he call that "heroic combo" or something like that. But here I think he is talking about ireversible maoi not moclobemide. I may be wrong though."Adverse drug reactions can result from combining MAO inhibitors with tricyclic/tetracyclic antidepressants and related compounds, including carbamazepine, cyclobenzaprine, and mirtazapine, and should be avoided except by experts to treat difficult cases" p.309 Essential Psychopharmacology The Prescriber?s Guide Stephen M.
