Thanks for the reply, Scott.
After the first hypertensive reaction, which was symptomatic, I started checking my BP regularly throughout the day and found this pattern where my BP would spike pretty high about 1/2 hour after a dose, unrelated to food. It seems to be getting a bit better. We're giving it one more week to see if my body adjusts and the hypertension no longer reoccurs.

I have atypical depression and extreme fatigue is the prominent symptom- since Parnate has a stimulant effect we went with that first. My doc prefers Marplan (fewer side effects, though knowing me...) instead of Parnate if the stimulant effect is not required, or as second choice if the Parnate doesn't work out.
