Hey ur not the only one,parnate was the only med that ever worked for me,so when it recently quit i dident know what to do,i cant go back to meds that dont work,and not much sense on staying on one that dont.

I found an abstract i have in my files about treatment resistent depression and parnate.It appears one meaning a docter sometimes needs to be fiearce with this med in keeping it from pooping out since it loves to do it.

I had ritalin added and i came out of a gut wrenching depression,it lasted a week and im speaking to my doc about hiring it tommorrow the ritalin that is.

I just also today added a caffiene tab to ritalin and parnate,and i feel better,youd think there be hyperness or anxiety,but no not even the SLIGHTEST hint.

In the articles i have it mentions docter using stimulants like ritalin,dexadrine and the like at fairly high doses to a pooped out parnate and the out come was very succesful.Im not in a place i can get to them now but if ud like i can post it.

As for interaction,i had none zlich nodda when i added ritalin to parnate,i lie not,i hadent the tiniest interaction what so ever.

I think there is something about adding a stimulant to this drug,since parnate at times can be energizing people always want to add sedatives,well every mood stablizer we tried failed,and failed miserable makig me worse,so if ritalin helped in the slightest that tells me thats the way to go is to stimulate the drug for a more robust anti depressant effect rather than adding sedatives which is more common.

Only problem is i know docs,the average doc is not willing to add a stimulant to it.Which is a shame.

But i am at a dose near u,having the same trouble with parnate,today i added ritalin,then a caffiene tab and at this moment i feel pretty normal,i guess the body is weird,but id speak to ur doc,let them know u need something added dont let ur depression grow if parnate is pooped it wont help.

I told my doc i was at her mercy,no more added anti psychotics,no more mood stablizers,add something for the wretched depression.Let me know if ud like to view the articles if u havent already.
