Please delete this mods=) Upon some reflection I now feel that this topic would best be discussed with a doctor instead of on a public forum.

Also there is a difference between reversible and irreversible maois - the latter knocks out your ability to detox tyramine for 2 weeks! The reversible kind supposedly has MUCH less danger associated with it. Deaths or serious reactions are very rare and almost never happen. Basically you arent supposed to eat heavy amounts of tyramine containing compounds but you are in far less danger than taking your average sleeping pill (*cough* lunesta anyone?)

St johns wort for some reason is listed as something that bi polar folks shouldnt take. Though maoi inhibitors are not. I understand that they are not used often anymore.. but what has taken their place? How can you get the effects of a maoi inhibitor when you dont use something that inhibits maoi (a/b)??

MAOI drugs aren't used frequently today because they interact with just about everything, and if you mess up it can be fatal. You'd be much better off with things like 5-HTP and St. John's Wort.

Modern SSRIs are WAY better than they used to be side-effect-wise.
