Robin and Elizabeth, in re Marplan & Parnate:

Robin, No fatigue on Marplan, and instead, that splendid presence of mind
that is, for me, unique to MAOIs. I did however gain 20 lbs
on Marplan, and I'm 5'2" so I looked and felt awful. Nardil
has gradually added 10 lbs, which is perhaps insignificant
when considering that these drugs has saved my life, but for a
dame with a past eating disorder, 10 lbs extra diminished
the quality of my life enough to want to give Parnate a try.

Which brings me to the fatigue problem and Elizabeth's questions
about dose, and also experience with amphets. As for the latter
the only experience I've had was with the illegal kind back
in the old days. The response was, shall we say, high-ly positive.
I'm curious about why you ask about this. As for dose: I take
30 mgs. a day, 10 mgs each at breakfast and lunch,
and 10 betwen 3-4 in the afternoon. The last one seems
not to ward off the weakness/sedation at all. Any thoughts
on all this are welcome. And for the record, after 2 weeks I
am beginning to slim down, and appetite is abated too, at least
for the time being.

Many thanks to all,
