I am seeing a psychiatrist, she's the one prescribing the Parnate. My point is, since this is the drug she is prescribing and psychiatric literature clearly outlines what to do for the patient in case of a hypertensive crisis, including Procardia sublingual 10-20 mg., as well as a trip to the ER (I've had 2 such experiences and do not want to go through it ever again),then she should provide the antedote. Instead I have to now involve my PCP who because he is not a psychiatrist is not familiar with MAOI's and see's them all as "bad" drugs. Good care should not be fragmented! I've had excellent psychiatrists in the past in other parts of this country, this doesn't encourage me as receiving good care.
Regarding hypertensive crisis and it being rare - I consumed a small piece of teriyaki chicken breast and had a "ride to hell" as a result. Not only did I require a trip via ambulance to the ER, I was subjected to terrible care by personnel who kept asking in unsympathetic fashion "why did you try to kill yourself"?
