The monoamine oxidase inhibitors are increasingly prescribed for several disorders today, after a hiatus of nonuse lasting a decade. One case of excessive MAOI use and two cases of MAOI withdrawal are reported in the literature. This case report adds a fourth instance and suggests patient characteristics which should alert the clinician to the risk of MAOI abuse or addiction.
