Avatar n tn s the issue -- they work very differently and target different neurotransmitters. The bigger problem is that MAO inhibitors are contraindicated with so many different foods and drugs that this really is a question for a pharmacist or your psychiatrist.
1179332 tn?1297478990 As I mentioned in another thread, I finally got to see the CSI episode on Chiari and I noticed that they mentioned that the victim had been taking MAO Inhibitors which had played a role in his death. I have had a few different anti-depressants over the year so it peaked my interest and I set out to find out why...I was amazed by what I found. Monoamine oxidase is an enzyme that eats up monoamine (one of the 3 neurotransmitters in the brain).
Avatar f tn As far as I know the only class of meds that have severe dietary restrictions are MAO inhibitors, which aren't used much anymore.
Avatar f tn I am severely allergic to SSRI's. I don't want to take an MAO Inhibitor because of the dietary restrictions. Is there any medicine I can take for depression other than SSRI's or MAO Inhibitors?
1772374 tn?1326246237 Just did some simple googling. Apparently a "new" drug (seems like the old ones) for bipolar disease. It's so new and so untested the mechanism of action is apparently not clearly known, but it probably acts in part on serotonin, meaning you shouldn't be taking 5htp with it for cautionary reasons, especially since this is a new med and the side effects won't be known for years.
Avatar n tn Took it for about 4 years and it worked wonders during that time for my Severe depression and anxiety. Then it just kind of started fading away and became less and less effective so I had to switch meds. Then I switch to Effexor and got around another 4 years effectivness from it until it also pooped out slowly. I have never heard of hair loss being a side effect of any AD medication. I know for me it never caused any hair loss.

Risk of convulsions may also increase in patients with epilepsy, those with a history of seizures, or in patients with a recognized risk for seizure (such as head trauma, metabolic disorders, alcohol and drug withdrawal, CNS infections).
Avatar m tn It's not that you can't take aspirin at all. All ssris have a warning about interactions with all NSAIDS, not just aspirin. You just have to be aware of bruising that might indicate excessive bleeding. So you have to be careful. Don't know about food interactions, I wasn't told of any. Lots of weight gain possible, however, so watch the fat and sugar and be careful with diet. I think you're thinking more of the MAO inhibitors, they have lots of food contraditions.
Avatar m tn Mao inhibitors are really last ditch efforts. Are you taking Klonopin or any other anti-anxiety med? Have you tried any tricyclics like amitriptiline? Have you tried Buspar? I tried a lot of SSRI's and finally landed on Celexa and it has helped alot. I know you don't want to keep trying drugs that don't work, but I would exhaust other alternatives before deciding on Nardil. As you said it is quite restrictive. I'm not sure injecting it would solve the interaction issues.
Avatar m tn As a person with advanced tardive dyskinesia in all forms including tardive akathesia I live with that all the time. I do remember having akathesia from antipsychotics. I even had akathesia from Clozaril which is extremely rare. However, now I am on glycine an anti-psychotic in Phase II FDA study that is a glutamate antagonist a new form of antipsychotic that won't cause tardive dyskinesia or diabetes and promotes a full recovery (for more information google "Dr.
Avatar f tn You should not take zoloft and adiplex...its a bad and sometimes dangerous combination. Adiplex has a stimulant effect,and perhaps you are missing that....there are no warnings about withdrawal effects from this medication.
Avatar f tn AMRIX is contraindicated in patients who are hypersensitive to any of its components. AMRIX is contraindicated with concomitant use of monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors or within 14 days after their discontinuation. AMRIX may have life-threatening interactions with MAO inhibitors. AMRIX is contraindicated during the acute recovery phase of myocardial infarction; in patients with arrhythmias, heart block conduction disturbances, or congestive heart failure; or in patients with hyperthyroidism.
774736 tn?1311331385 Because cigarette smoke has been reported to inhibit monoamine oxidase (MAO) A in vitro and in animals and because MAO A inhibitors are effective antidepressants, we tested the hypothesis that MAO A would be reduced in the brain of cigarette smokers. We compared brain MAO A in 15 nonsmokers and 16 current smokers with [11C]clorgyline and positron emission tomography (PET).
1100140 tn?1260594269 They contain beta-carboline harmala alkaloids which are MAO inhibitors which basically means antidepressant proprieties. Another interesting propriety is the chrysin. It is proved to be a flavone with anxiolytic and anti-inflammatory proprieties. The combination of all those chemicals most likely have very calming effect and impact on your mood. Caution is advised tho.

Avatar f tn I copied and pasted some info for you to consider; Do not take phentermine if you have used an MAO inhibitor which is one of a potent class of medications used to treat depression,such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam), or tranylcypromine (Parnate) within the past 14 days. Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you take phentermine before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body.
Avatar f tn If you've tried anti-depressants in all the major classes at peak doses that you can tolerate, then I bet that you haven't tried MAO Inhibitors. They are not prescribed very often because there are foods that cannot be eaten while on the med. I took them when no other med available at the time worked for me. That was the happiest I ever was in my life when I took them. Ask your doctor about it. Also if nothing has worked, you could try ECT.

Avatar m tn Xanax is a benzo and CANNOT be stopped abruptly. It HAS TO be tapper down very slowly. 5htp is an amino acid that is converted in the brain to serotonin. It helps maintaining a emotional and mental well being, BUT it can't be taken if you're under anti depressant, SSRI's, MAO inhibitors or triptans. All this to say that talking about meds is extremely dangerous when we are not doctors or just don't know! Please go to another doctor and ask for some help and a taper plan.
