> Hi guys,
> Today I'm starting a beastly augment, with the hope of keeping my parnate stimulation alive and finally beating anhedonia.
> My current situation has been to start parnate, and once the MAO inhibition kicks in to amplify the stimulation, I get a couple of good weeks where I feel normal again. The stimulation has always died quickly however, and I would need to take 6 months off the parnate to get that effect again.
> The plan is:
> 1. Take 10mg memantine until I've worked off any side effects it may cause
> 2. Raise memantine to 20mg and start 60mg parnate.
> 3. ????????
> Took the first 10mg memantine today. I expected it to totally zonk me it. Surprisingly though, it felt slightly pleasant, and talking became a bit easier. Suspect a small amount of dopamine release? If that effect built up over the course I would be eternally grateful. For today however, it wore off after a couple of hours.
> I did also feel a bit less present, but that didn't bother me with the pleasant feeling in the background and all. Am looking forward to starting the parnate.

Good luck.

It sounds like a good plan.

I once added memantine (Namenda) to Parnate. It might possibly have helped, but Parnate was discontinued soon thereafter for lack of sufficient effect.

How do you respond to Lamictal?

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
