> 1. Drank 2 beers (Coors lite) night before, both nights. Could alcohol interfere with small benefit I'm getting? Or with low BP?

> 2. This morning slept REALLY late so didn't get Parnate till late. Am I surviving on tiny bit NE? Maybe had some w/d's?

> Really don't think I'm getting the "real thing" yet. I think I'm getting small buzz off NE/EP cause I always feel better little while after dose.

I don't think timing or a beer is going to have a huge effect.

> Do you mind telling me your dosing schedule from beginning? How long on each dose, how long you've been on it, if you're responding? Anything else you can tell me? Do you take anything that you think effects your result (augment, adjunct, d/r's secret homemade recipe?)

I started a 40mg. had a response to that after a week. spent a few weeks there, and then went to 60mg. no difference. I also take
50mg trazodone - for sleep
600mg adrafinil
20mg memantine - i am impatient, and think polypharmacy is a good idea, so i added this, as the only otehr option to modify glutamateric system with some evidence for unipoal depression is lamotrigine, and i didn't want to worry about rash, and memantine also prevents stim tolerance
various neutraceutical things. w-3 oil, ALCAR, very low dose lithium, b-complex, d3, minerals, etc
dysphoric mood ended with the tranylcypromine. anxiety and sluggishness/daydreaming/laziness which i don't think are caused by depression it does not help with.

> I'm taking Klonopin 3mg daily for old neck injury. Don't need it anymore (don't think), could kick myself for not d/c before Parnate but wanted to start so bad. Could that be interfering with result?

probably not

> Btw-I was going to find you today, I'm sure you know I used to "lurk" here a lot, did you know "Pheonix I"? Remember reading post about what happened when he went from Nardil (Canada ran out) to Parnate, I believe overnight, then I think back to Nardil. It was a quick (couple days?) taper. Anyway, outcome was PRES. If you don't know him could you do a search and check it out? I don't want to give Shawn bad advice. He already had that bad experience with 105mg Nardil.
