I've been reading your thread with great interest. This forum is excellent!! I have Treatment Resistant depression/anxiety and have been on so many meds I don't like to think about it. My pdoc has been urging me to try Parnate for several years and I finally decided to give it a try. I was on a very high dose of Wellbutrin (45% improvement) for years. I've had insomnia for most of my life and Wellbutrin didn't make it worse or better.
My pdoc didn't want me to get insomnia from the parnate, so I did a two month titration down on the Wellbutrin plus he added amytriptyline (50mg) at that point, for it's AD benefits as the wellbutrin left my system and to get me sleeping. It worked, because I am sleeping. I don't have any insomnia, so I love that! But I'm really tired on the Parnate so started Provigil today.

I do think that starting the amytriptyline EARLY, avoided the insomnia piece of Parnate. Because of the fatigue I may have to give up the amytriptyline at some point, but I hope not.

I like the Parnate and want to make it work!

Good luck in finding the right med for you!
