tyler,
right, taking it easy is the trick.
i was never able to sleep a normal shift.

i was initially prescribed by a Pdoc who's mentor used it and considered it a "smart drug". as i am a "creative", i found it tremedously activating in regard to my visual system, previs, ambition, empathy, inspiration, intuition.

i went off on my own after a falling out with this pDoc, and did in fact augment it with numerous meds commonly countraindicated. As in my experience the poop occured round about month 6. the one combo not often discussed and take this only as personal experience, NOT A SUGGESTION, as I have yet to see any studies, was low dose parnate (<60mg) with medium low dose provigil (50-100mg). it was quite potent augmentation, i had little to no BP affect, though did find myself (as i do on high dose provigil) increasing stereotypic behaviors-i.e. grooming. it was quite pleasant, but not a productive use of time. it must be triggering an older (mammalian/mesocortical) brain structure, as it often reminds me of monkey man behavior.

also: seroquel i would believe is an odd combo as it antagonizes most of the same receptor sites partnate is intentionally activating. i don't follow the logic except as an antidote; for adverse effects created by excess monoamine action-like mania, psychosis, hostility, etc.

the worst part of parnate inho: was the brutal withdrawl.
like being hit with reserpine-pure monoamine depletion. from 6-8 mo's use I'd say it was a brutal 7-10 affair with a month or so of pure readjustment.

has anyone really gotten the parnate sleep cycle down?
trazadone works, but does selectively enhance 5HT(serotonin) almost too much. Benzo's suck for the memory interference on a regular basis.

i just never felt i had the true benefit of parnate consciousness untill about 12 hours after first ingestion. I'd just start feeling lucid right around midnight, so all nighters occured every other night! Got 40 hours of work done in 2 days! Then slept like a baby thoroughly exhausted and unaugmented.
