from parnate to marplan

Posted by rose45 on August 7, 2021, at 6:58:31

Nardil pooped out on me many years ago. I was then put on Parnate, which worked really well. Unfortunately I reduced the dose as I got 'high' on it, after an intense meditation retreat, and it stopped working entirely. I tried augmentation with low dose olanzapine and it worked again, but stupidly I also slowly decreased the olanzapine and the combo stopped working altogether. Ive no idea why reducing a med makes it stop working for me, and not for others.There are people who have been on maois for 40 years or so.

Im in the uk and after trying augmentation with lamotrigine (which has severely affected my memory) this worked, but only for 3 months.

Now the NHS psychs are giving me the alternative of ECT which I dont want, or slowly reducing the Parnate (over 9 months ?) and replacing it with venlafaxine which I would prefer not to do, as only the maois have ever worked for me, but seems I dont have that much choice, and I am seriously unwell and wracked by anxiety and loss of memory, so barely able to function.

Only the maois have really worked for me. Has anyone had any success with Marplan after taking Parnate. Or with Venlafaxine after Parnate? I am really desperate. Thank you.
