Hi, well I took the Old Nardil successfully for 20 years and unfortunately the new one gave me insomnia , memory lapses, rashes and stomach problems to name a few, I may try emsam but I think I tried that drug years ago??, orally not as a patch of course,?? ....getting discouraged....

> Hi,
> I'm sorry you've been having problems on Parnate. Have you tried Nardil? It's supposed to have fewer BP issues. I was on that before Parnate and while it definitely helped my depression I gained about 20 pounds and it disturbed my sleep. There are a few posts about it on this board. Also, look at at the post below yours; seems promising!
> Good luck!

> > I started Parnate 2 months ago and having same problems as you...BP spikes without a catalyst. Also periodic depressive episodes....Had hope for it but the BP spikes are troubling even though it is of the mild variety. Good luck to you!

While Parnate has been my life saver for the past 7 and a half years I can't handle the stress of uncontrolled BP spikes.
