> I thought I was well-versed in my disorder, but I've never come across the term "sympathomimetic agonism" before. Since I'm on Parnate, I'm curious to know what that is. Also, could you tell me how long you were taking it before you began to feel its benefits? I've been on it almost a month and feel the same anticipatory anxiety and physical systems as before.

Hey Lisa
sympathomimetic is a term typically used to describe drugs that stimulate the central nervous system, like ephedrine, pseudofed,, he is using the term "sympathomimetic agonism", when refering to the drug Parnate.

Until recently, it was believed that the metabolites of Parnate were Amphetamine and Methamphetamine, which would fit the definition of "sympathomimetic agonists"

Most research does not support the amphetamine metabolite theory. However, there is still a lot to learn about MAOI pharmacology.
