> Jessica, what is parnate like up in the 60 plus stratosphere. The most I've gotten to is 50 mg. I find it hard to stay asleep and a bit more revved up at the higher levels, although I had experienced that at lower doses also, until I acclamated.

I'm definitely struggling since I lowered to 40mg. When I was at 100mg I felt pretty great. The best I'd felt in years and years. As I passed 60mg the positive effect just kept increasing. I stopped at 100mg because that was the point at which I could handle the med without being too dizzy. For sleep I take trazodone. I absolutely can't sleep if I don't take anything to help! I would still occasionally cycle in my sleep patterns where I would have trouble sleeping for several days and then crash. But if I regularly took Trazodone it wasn't as bad.

To counteract the dizziness I just split the dose into three times a day. The only problem I would have is if I missed my first dose by more than an hour or so. Then I'd be dizzy and tired for a bit.

The only reason I'm not still at 100mg is because I was trying to taper onto Lamictal and come down in the Parnate. But after I started doing that I started running low on meds and my new insurance only covers 50%. And 50% is still too expensive. So, until I can afford it - I'm at 40mg Parnate, 0 Lamictal. And starting to struggle again depression-wise.
