It's always hard to know for sure.

There was a time when I was partially responsive to Parnate monotherapy during which I would feel somewhat better whenever I would adjust the dosage either up or down.

Do you feel that Parnate is blunting your emotions or your personality in some way? Parnate could keep me out of the deepest depression, but somehow left me flat. I found Nardil to produce a more complete antidepressant effect. If you aren't ready to give up on Parnate just yet, you could try augmenting it with low-dose lithium or thyroid homone.
