Hi louisebrady. A MAO is used when a person doesn't respond to the more conventional route of anti-depressants. They are a strong, powerfull anti-depressant, and many people once on them, do well and so stay on them, often for years. The drawbacks are side effects, and a special diet. Best of wishes,pledge
