I actually took Mirapex while on Nardil once and I got sick as hell.

There is no published drug interaction, but taking any Parkinson's medication while on Nardil is extremely risky, IMO.

As for the serotonin/hypomania problem, I've been through a lot of it. It's tolerable, from a subjective point of view, although the insomnia can be a bitch. You might try looking at strict dietary regulation, i.e. regulating the amount of L-tryptophan, if it's a big problem.

The worst I ever experienced was taking oral steroids, prescribed by an ENT doc so I could have my sinuses photographed, while on Nardil. One step short of methamphetemine -- some nights I couldn't sleep 2 hours even with medication. I almost lost control in the MRI machine due to total blind screaming panic.

Maybe a mild stimulant such as modofinal(Provigil) might help. I have used nortriptyline at 100mg with Nardil at 90mg in the past. It really didn't seem to do much for me. Maybe a higher dosage of notriptyline would help for me since I seem to be a rapid tricyclic metabolizer. The 100mg of notrip did not get me close to the therapeutic window for the mediation.
