> Dont take this as a insult,i only am posting this because i seen a fellow babbler b-ocked in a previous thread in which i personaly felt was infair.
> Phillipa,i am confused why you are concerned with maois when you are not on one,and from your own mentioning dont plan to be on one?
> Anyone sticking to the thread,i actualy saw a small study that used Nardil treatment prior to parnate to add to parnate im guessing a gabaergic affect.
> Judging from that study,the results were fair,and you can imagine how there was no washout period.Parnate is actualy considered by some to be reversable opposed to irrevsable as noted.

> "your getting older,but the disease isnt,maois build a structure but if the chemicals arent there maois wont matter so taking more wont help"

Hi Shasling,

Sounds like a wise old man, lol

So you think what he meant was that once Parnate is working at lets say 80mg day, and that poops out, its time to augment, not increase dose?

How long have you been on Parnate?
Dose? Augmnent? s/e's?

Have you responded as you had hoped? Not sure what your dx is. Sorry if any of this repeat.


Excellent PDoc btw, 10yrs exp w/ MAOIs and augments.

80mg day (40mg 2x day)
Augment 40mg Ritalin (20mg 2x day)
I have to take my BP 15min before dose, 15min after dose, 30min after dose

I have a chart, if my numbers dont stay within that chart I have to page him immediately. He's an excellent PDoc in my opinion. I am so lucky I found him. I am well on my way out of a nightmare depression. He says to expect 80-85% remission and the rest he feels will come from therapy.

btw- I see him every 2 weeks and per his request therapy every 2 weeks. Therapist changed it to once a week.....ouch, haha.

Oh-dx MDD

Let me know about your experience so far.


~Jade ps-I know you have concerns about combining ritalin with Parnate, but my BP is MUCH better with the Ritalin. I was so fatigued by low BP it didnt matter that I felt better cause I was too tired to do anything!!
