Dr. G - have you heard of him?......
ddnos posted:
Hi again Dr. G. - are you aware of the name, "Dr. Ken Gillman" who resides in Australia? If so, do you know if his claims are accurate - the following claims: "I am an internationally acknowledged authority on Serotonin Toxicity (ST), aka Serotonin Syndrome (SS), and also an expert on Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS), MAOIs and drug adverse reactions and interactions, especially those relating to MAOIs, TCAs, SSRIs and SNRIs."

Just curious because I've never come across a Psychiatrist (or in his case, retired psychiartist) who claims to be an expert on MAOI's. I want to pick the brains of anyone who knows anything about MAOI's, especially someone who is considered an "expert." Unless only HE considers himself an expert in the area. lol

I did email him and did reply and wants to discuss my situation via Skype - it would just be nice if at least you could say you know of him and that he's legit, you know?

Thank you

Dear Debbie,

I don't know this doctor, or his work, but a quick check of Medline ( ) shows that he's published a number of review papers and letters in the medical peer-reviewed literature on topics related to psychopharmacology and serotonin syndrome. Sorry I can't give a more informed opinion.

Dr. G.
