That's a great idea. And I am definitely physically active when not severely depressed. I think I'll start tomorrow with a nice walk. Thanks for the advice.

> Thanks Jaclin, you sound like a very nice person and with 25 yrs MAOI experience...Wow! I'll take any advice I can get from you please. And, what do you use for sleep, I'm taking Trazodone and it works ...okay, and sometimes not so okay! Take care!

Well thank you Tyler. Happy people are nice people, don't ya thiml? ;-) I take Trazodone as well for sleep. Works good. All the others couldn't put me to sleep without adding a Klonopin in the mix. Don't think about pooping (out...hehe) The MAOI's are the only drugs out there being used for depression and anxiety that doctors call a cure, not just a fix to hold you over until something better comes along. Here is an interesting, straightforward article on them....

Did you know that there is a really great book abouut a mom's experience with her daughter on Nardil? It's called "You Mean I Don't Have To Feel This Way?" by Colette Dowling. Right now Amazon has one used for .51 It's very good and inspiring read.

Hi Tyler

>I am using Trazodone right now(pdocs 1st choice) It works well if I can FALL asleep, in other words it's good for once I can get to sleep keeping me asleep thru the nite but not good for putting me asleep.

You could try taking it earlier in the evening because it sometimes takes quite a while to 'kick in'. You could take it at about 8.30pm or something.

Regards

Ed

Hey, I know that feeling - It's nice to feel so good, I'm feeling great today! My pdoc (Yesterday ) increased my Trazodone to 250-I know that's alot but I'm a pretty big guy, not fat just big :-) and anyway it worked really well last night and I didn't have those funky vivid dreams. I also take Benadryl with the traz, I take 2 pills i believe it's 50 mgs. Stay well girl.

You guys are making me jealous.
I think not wanting to sleep to not waste life is a pretty good sign of remission.
Wanting to sleep all the time is bad bad sign, and a waste ultimately.
I took about almost 200mg trazadone last night and I think I'm noticing it's own AD effect. I think when I ad 5htp to it it induces the hypnagogic (half awake/asleep) state that's great for freaky *ss experiences.
Every time I took parnate I eliminated vast amounts of sleep.
The danger psychologically, which I found rather fascinating maybe even inspiring, was the way my unconscious/dream like visuals/thoughts would influence my conscious thought. Typically after about 48 hrs deprivation.

Heck I pushed into 72 hours without sleep ever so often. That's when it definitely gets freaky. Though 36hrs awake 12hrs sleep always seemed the most appropriate since you don't miss a day that way. You could do a week of work in 2days. Then have 5 days off!!! Not for the weak of heart or peeps with significant others....

Do you guys get muscle soreness after those allnighters?
I'd often wake up feeling like i'd been lifting weights everytime.
Dunno if it was or wasn't due to increased physical activity...

Thoughts??

Wanting to stay awake is awesome compared to wanting to sleep all day like I used to...i wanted an escape from my misery. I used to drink (I'm definitely an alcoholic,recovering that is-just about 2 yrs. of sobriety) I drank because the meds didn't work for me-it almost cost me my marriage-I don't know how my wife has put up with all my sh**, but she has, we've been married for 20 yrs. and have two wonderful sons one 7 the other 4.
As for the sore muscles, I'm 47 so I'm Gunna have some sore muscles regardless of what I do. :) I was in a bad care wreck about 24 yrs. ago and it really did a number on my neck and lower back( in case you're wondering there was alcohol involved ). So, yes I have a lot of aches and pains in my neck and back after a full night of work, but not really sore muscles.
In 25 yrs. Parnate is by far the best ad i've been on and i've been on nearly all of them. I can honestly say I feel awesome, best i've felt by far since i was a kid!!

Ty,
Great to hear!
Especially when others in your family/friends/relationships feel the same.
Watch out not overdoing it. Don''t want no serious back injuries.
Not fun surgery.
I definitely sensed some form of specific muscle pain; i.e. lactic acid buildup, and wonder if its me or something more common.
Maybe worth starting new thread.
best,

I feel like that today but for me it is from the Trazodone. I take one white pill (low dose, don't remember exactly what it is) normally for sleep and last night I took an pill and a half. Today, my fingers, toes and shoulders are in such pain. Any else get that from Trazodone? It's like I spent the night punching and kicking someone (hubby is still alive and well :-)

No, I really don't have any bad side effects with Traz and I'm on a pretty high dose. Can hardly believe it- last nite was the 5th good nite sleep in a row, I'm up at 6:00 am and ready to take on the world. :) I'm also ( probably repeating myself ) taking two benadryl and the Traz at bedtime-working like a charm so far. No hang-over, just darn good sleep.
You know, my wife is working on her RN degree, has about a year to go...anyway we had a long talk yesterday and she says I'm definietly not Manic...I know i'm not either but was good to get an outside opinion. She doe's say however that she can tell i'm a lot happier, a better husband / father, nicer,more social,and i have a lot of energy..good energy, not like nervous energy where a person can't sit still. She calls me " Mr. Clean " cause now that i'm well i'm doing so much more around the house...which she loves. :)

Ty "Mr. Clean" :)

Hey man, FAR OUT! Yes I graduated in 1976 and I have 3 boys ages 15, 13 and 10. My 10 year old is bipolar but very stable on abilify and trileptal. Abilify is a real magic bullet for a lot of kids. I live in Missouri (Lord help me) but I am from Brooklyn, NY. We moved here from Hawaii. Hubby was a submariner and he retired after 22 years in, from Hawaii.

Ahhhh memories......

>Today, my fingers, toes and shoulders are in such pain.

Hmmm, yes that's the feeling. My hands felt like I had been doing serious manual labor. legs, arms. I do not get that from traz alone. Did get it on Parnate without traz too. Jaclyn, you did pull an all nighter as well eh? And you were cleaning house etc...

I don't recall that feeling from other all nighter sessions w/out Parnate. Sleep isn't typically considered significant for muscle repair, its' mostly about brain rest.

All the google stuff shows is that muscle soreness is related to an overdose...I think they relate it to hypertension, though i know that my bp was normal...

What about pupil dilation? Any experiences with that? I got that ever so often and its also related to overdose (call your doc) etc. etc...but so is eating banana skins...

No, I haven't noticed any pupil dilation. And like I said I know mine was from the Traz although I am still a bit sore. But you are right too about the cleaning frenzy. I haven't cared for so long about what the place looked like, ya know? Suddenly I wanted a clean kitchen. I did a lot of scrubbing. Today my feet and hands are back to normal but my shoulder is so tender I have to carry my bag on my other shoulder. And it looks bigger than the other one...I mean the top of my shoulder where it sticks up (and I went to medical assistant school many years ago...do you like my technical jargon? ;-) Even my husband agrees. It isn't hot to the touch or red. Hell, I had this once before too and it passed.

Everything bad passes and only the good stuff remains :-)

Dude that is almost too radical for words (why do I feel like we've been channeling John Denver?) We were stationed at Silverdale sub-base for a few years so I know your fine state very well. I will never be able to look at the scrawny hills that they call mountains around here. How can I when I used to see Mt. Rainer every day on the highway?

Oh but hey the Colorado Rocky Mountain High...
I've seen it.... ;-)

Stay chillin man

You're a crack-up Girl..:) I've been cleaning our house like a maniac lately,as it sounds you have been doing the same-feels great to have energy! I find that when I keep going/working, it actually gives me more energy, when I kick back for too long I get soooo relaxed, not fatigued or sleepy, just very relaxed and this i'm enjoying also. Hey, hope you have a SUPER DAY! :)
Later Gator,
