Hi cyber-
I wrote before about a hypertensive reaction I had on 30 mg Parnate- I've been on it about 4 weeks now. The first time I had a reaction I thought it was food related, since it was about 1 hour after lunch, but I did not eat anything unusual or provocative.

Since then, I've had multiple high spikes in my BP within 1/2 hour after taking a dose of Parnate, unrelated to food, whether I've eaten or not. Spontaneous hypertensive reactions, though rare, are known to occur with Parnate. It figures I'd be one of the rare ones! Like I wrote before, every med I've tried I've gotten all of the side effects and none of the benefit. Very frustrating. I was hoping this would work this time- I've been through Celexa, Celexa + Wellbutrin, Wellbutrin alone, Effexor, Provigil- never felt better on any of them, only side effects. Since it seems I have atypical depression (for which MAOIs are often the best choice), my doc and I had high hopes for Parnate.

We spread out the dose of Parnate over the day, which seems to help a bit but my BP still spikes occasionally. I might have to stop it and switch to Nardil or Marplan if there's no improvement.
