When it works, it makes me sharp as a tack.

Just remember that you are not taking Parnate alone.

Depressive illness itself produces cognitive and memory impairments. Sometimes, people become more aware of them when they consider the possibility that they are side effects of a drug or residual effects of ECT. It happens. However, it also happens that the impairments are directly attributable to the drugs. I do recall experiencing a bit of a "brain fog" the first time I combined Parnate with desipramine. It improved with time. Also, I think that memory is one of the last things to improve as one emerges from depression. Lamictal causes me significant cognitive slowing and memory impairments. When the time is right, I am going to try to reduce the dosage.
