Hello paddo,

> Hi..yes i am on MAOI parnate. Just today psychdoc suggested to ^up parnate from the present 40mg. Tomorrow 60 30/30 m/n.

Looks like a lot of PDoc's skip the 50mg dose and go from 40mg to 60mg. I wonder why. I just asked to go from 40mg to 50mg as thought it would be next. I'll have to learn to keep my mouth shut!!

.i also take lamictal 200 mg m/nite serequel thank god. Since 28th november temazapan for sleep ..sorta semi has affect for some sleep..Ativan 1/4 twice a day more if needed.

How do you find the Lamictal? I've had a lot of people (including PDoc) say its worth trying, do you think so? What benefit do you think you get from it specifically?

Apart from a few ugly days nites, reduction in chronic angst dep also reduced s.a. equally ocd at times to put simply ignore. Today as it does misery returned. Earlier in the week i had this amasing surge of energy, focused to work around the home..outside of home easy conversations, eye contact good ..sense of humour returned .

To what do attribute your good mood earlier in the week? Gosh I'd love some of that! Had you added or increased anything? Dropped anything like seroquel? I always feel great/energetic just after dose increase of Parnate (however didn't have it this time-40mg to 50mg). Glad I'm not the only one who get's that really "ugly" couple of days occasionally. A friend of mine had the theory that when taking MAOI, its a bumpy road till benefits of inhibition catch up to each other. Don't know.

I take no delight in taking benzo's, previous experience's. Caught between a rock and a hard place i guess. Xcuse this ramble, in the darkness of mind as well as the darkness of sitting in front of pter,yes the lights are on, if well enough this site distracts me like nothing else..a life-saver i gather a lot of strength from you all. thankyou. paddo

My lights are not on, well, couple lamps, haha, and btw, that was not a ramble. I joined a couple months ago (I had been lurking for long time) and it's been really helpful when I had no clue what I was doing. Lot of nice people too, so good to know you're not alone! Keep in touch re: your Parnate progress, I will too! Oh, would like to hear back about questions if you have time. Also, tell me about your SA & OCD, didn't understand if Parnate helped those or not. I don't suffer from those, just a nasty depression, but many here do.

Hope to talk soon,
