Sorry, I messed up my post by not changing the title. I'm new to forums and am still learning! I started Parnate May 4th, so I've been on it almost two months. I can't take any of the MANY S__R's, or lamictal or lithium (I'm not bipolar)etc.etc. I have tried in the past, always going back to Wellbutrin which I could always take with no side effects at all but only partial improvement. My Pdoc has wanted me to try Parnate or do ECT for a long time but I have been afraid
of both of them. After a lot of reading I found that lots of people had really good results with Parnate and only a few with ECT. And if Parnate didn't work you could get off of it with no permanent damage.
Fatigue has always been a major part of my treatment resistent depression. I also saw something a Pdoc wrote which said "Parnate will ALWAYS work" if you work with it. That stuck in my mind.
My Pdoc always likes to combine Parnate with certain tricyclics. He thinks it works better that way even though the literature says they are not to be used together. He named off a list of 2 or three tricyclics to choose from and I chose amytriptyline because I thought the Parnate would jazz me up and give me insomnia. Wrong. I;ve slept well haven't had insomnia, but I am tired. He doesn't want me to change the amytriptyline for awhile..maybe later. So he put me on Provigil which I started yesterday.
In spite of being so tired I DO feel better on the Parnate, sort of under the fatigue is more of a sense of well being, brightness or clarity or something like that.
I'm committed, at this point, to work with the Parnate and augmentation, for months if necessary. There isn't anything out there right now that sounds better for me.
Sorry to ramble. Hope this answers your question! Gayle
