MAO inhibitors have much clearer indications for use in the treatment of depression, especially for patients who have atypical features or treatment-resistant illness. The use of MAO Inhibitors for anxiety is not something I am familiar with.
However, another member may have some info for you. :)
Take care and keep posting.Kitt
Wiggyann, Hi, I was put on a MAO for depression/anxiety a few years ago but found that it didn't work for me (but most meds don't so no true indicator!).
Have you ben prescribed this med or just thinking about it? It can have some contradinications (spelling?) and side effects that can be unpleasant. Oh gosh I'm sounding negative here!! I hope someone else can help you more than me. Keep us posted.
