I've been prescribed Tranylcypromine for more than twenty years although I haven't needed treatment for Clinical Depression for over fifteen years. My GP would rather I wasn't on it at all because of the problems it causes should I need certain other medications or anaesthesia any time in the future. I was prescribed 30mg [maximum dose] initially and stayed on this dose for 5 years before reducing it to a maintenance dose of 10mg. However when I tried to stop it altogether I experienced anxiety attacks and some of the symptoms of my previous illness. These are now recognised as part of a withdrawal syndrome. Has anybody here had experience of coming of MAOI's?
