Hey Andrew,
I did experience partial relief from my depression while taking the Parnate. However, it did not help that much with the anxiety. My concentration was better, but (and I know this sounds weird)everything outside of my head still seemed as if it was dream like. The reason I discontinued the Parnate is it stopped working even when the doc tried to add toher things.
Thanks for the book referral. I will order it right away. Also, I have never heard of the other antidepressants you mentioned except for the amineptine which I read about on this site.
Have a great one! ~Sharon

> > First of all, I would like to thank everyone that has responded to my post. I am like you Kaarina in that medication makes my depression much worse. I have had all the usual bloodwork done, and nothing shows up. It is very disheartening to hear how medication helps everyone, but for some reason I can not take it. My only problem is that I have been depressed for 5 1/2 years, so I don;t have any hopes that it will ever go away.

> Sharon did Parnate take away your brain fog or just not make it worse? Why aren't you taking it now? I took Amineptine and my brain fog went away, a real blessing. I think it is interesting that both Amineptine and Parnate have action upon the dopamine pathways. By the way, before I took Amineptine I was taking Serzone, an SSRI, and it only made the brain fog worse!
> Here's a list of some of some other antidepressants that act on the dopamine pathways and therefore may help with brain fog: Nardil (older irreversable MAO-I), Minaprine (dopamine reuptake inhibitor), Moclebemide (MAO-I), Pramipexole (D3 agonist, under investigation as an antidepressant), and Triflouperazine (can act similar to amisulpride), selegiline.
> One final note, don't despair because you've had depression for 5 and a half years. Most people with chronic depressions can be helped. Perhaps you will find encuragement and learn about treatment strategies by reading the book Dysthymia and the Spectrum of Chronic Depression (Hagod S. Akiskal , ed.).
