I saw my psychiatrist today and told him that I was experiencing anxiety and overstimulation on my current dose of Parnate (5mg 3x a day).

I've suspected that raising the dose - thus allowing for increased MAO inhibition - might help offset these side-effects, but was too scared to suggest as much. His opinion was that higher dose = more side-effects.

I did, however, note that I found the Parnate-induced stimulation far more tolerable during instances where I combined it with Valium. So thankfully he's decided to prescribe Valium 5mg 3x a day in the hope that I can now reach a therapeutic dose of Parnate.

My only qualm is that, despite complaining that Clonidine was causing next-day flatness, reduced mood etc., he's said that this is something I'll "simply have to put up with for now". It is interfering with my social life because I'm a lot more sedated and inert and uninteresting, so I was kinda disappointed with his decision.
