In reply to documention of *high dose* Parnate?, posted by iforgotmypassword on May 9, 2005, at 23:27:34

> when i was on parnate my doctor only let me go up to 40mg, is there any documentation out there that i may be able to share with him demostrating efficacy and safety of high dose treatment?

Jay Amsterdam, MD at the University of Pennsylvania has used high-dosage Parnate (tranylcypromine) for many years in treatment resistant cases:

Personally, I think the "normal" range of Parnate should lie between 40-80mg. 40mg is the minimum that people with severe or resistant depression tend to respond to. I need 60mg to get any kind of relief and 80mg to optimize it.
