Hi Eric.

The lack of controlled studies can be supplanted by anecdotal data from clinical experience. Personally, I consider the therapeutic range of Parnate to be 40-80mg.

The key to your doctor's rationale is that it is not worth going higher than 60mg if no partial response has occurred by that point. He might be right, but I would not stop titrating at 60mg if you are tolerating it. You are on the stuff, so you might as well fully explore its potential.

Adding nortriptyline or desipramine to Parnate can work wonders.
