This works well, but if I take *any* Parnate after 5pm, I'm up the entire night. For what it's worth, I also find 2.5mg to be almost ideal as far as concentration, anxiety etc. goes.

I'm becoming increasingly suicidal and feel that I need to try and achieve an AD benefit faster, but simply can't tolerate a 10mg dose, which makes reaching 30mg difficult.

Otherwise, would my best bet be to just (temporarily?) employ a benzodiazepine to counter the overstimulation and try push through to a higher dose?

I'm trying to hang on and appeal to logic, but it's difficult. Additionally, if anyone has any advice for pushing through extreme despair, I'd appreciate it. I try to cover the basics - going for walks, watching TV, seeing friends when I can.

I see a great danger in the taking in combination the drugs you have listed here. First, the potential of a hypertensive crisis
Let us look at {clonidine}. Now here is a link of the reported adverse reaction of hypertensive crisis with clonidine. I intend to develope an exposition here that IMHO could save your life or prevent you from getting a life-ruining condition or addiction, unless the rule of 3 applies.
