What is the difference between SSRIs, MAOIs and TCAs?

Antidepressants: SSRIs increase serotonin by inhibiting the re uptake of serotonin into the neurons. MAOIs increase serotonin by preventing the serotonin from being metabolized/destroyed. TCAs also inhibit the re uptake of serotonin but most also inhibit the re uptake of norepinephrine as well.
They each have different side effects which can affect your ability to tolerate taking them. ...Read more

What number of weeks are your supposed to be off an ssri before going on an maoi?

2 weeks: "Particular care must be exercised in switching patients from an MAOI to other antidepressant classes. For the patient who has completed an MAOI trial without therapeutic response, TCAs, SSRIs, bupropion, nefazodone, and other MAOIs should not be started until 10 to 14 days after the original MAOI has been discontinued. Although not currently designated an antidepressant, the serotonin agonist anxiolytic buspirone should also be included on this list. If possible, a similar waiting period should follow the discontinuation of a TCA or bupropion when an MAOI is to be administered. However, as noted above, MAOIs may be safely begun, with the appropriate precautions, even while a patient remains on some TCAs (Kahn et al. 1989)." ...Read more

If I overdosed on an MAOI 4 weeks ago, could any potential complications have happened during the event, without me being able to notice them now?

Unlikely: Toxicity is mostly due to effects on circulatory system. They can be severe. But if no stroke/heart attack/etc. The drug is out of the system rapidly and doesn't accumulate. Monitoring of neurologic symptoms and heart problems would probably be done during the initial toxicity. But should be done at some time if they were not. ...Read more

Is it dangerous to combine an maoi b (deprenyl) with phenylethylamine (pea)?

Yes: Yes, there are potential dangers, namely deprenyl could cause marked elevations in the concentration of pea, which could cause a sudden spike in blood pressure, causing a potential stroke/cva.

Is deprenyl any safer than other maois for depression? If I take it and accidentally eat a small amount of tyramine containing food, will I die?

Is deprenyl any safer than other maois for depression? If I take it and accidentally eat a small amount of tyramine containing food, will I die?

Doubtful: There is a great deal of concern about maoi's such as deprenyl/selegiline. The concern is that ingesting foods such as smoked meats, aged hard cheeses, and fava beans can lead to a hypertensive crisis. However, ingesting relatively small amounts is unlikely to cause a problem, especially if you are on a small dose or the selegiline patch. Nonetheless, it's a good idea to be careful. ...Read more
