Nardil has been chosen to study more often than Parnate. However, I would probably choose Parnate first, as it is usually more forgiving with regard to side effects. There is no reason why amphetamine or methylphenidate could not be employed in conjunction with a MAOI. Desipramine and nortriptyline can be used as well.

Say that to my new pdoc, whose best defense against the slew of literature I brought her validating the safety of (selected) TCAs with MAOIs was "You can find literature for everything."

On a week wash-out from Marplan and starting notriptyline on Monday. I know it takes more time to adjust but not sure I like being off an MAOI at this point. I was able to fill a refill for Marplan so I have about 4 months' worth if I were to resume it at 20mg with the nortrip and without her knowledge.
