I've taken parnate for a unipolar depression. I had a good response to it which lasted for a number of months and then it ceased to be effective. The two things to keep in mind are the need to follow the dietary restrictions (Dr. Bob has something about that) and also the chance that it will cause orthostatic hypotension (you get dizzy when you stand up- so you have to remember to stand up slowly)
As for the sleep issue I had the opposite problem to your concern which is to say that I found the parnate quite sedating and so I found myself needing afternoon naps.
But all things considered it certainly was helpful to me.
Let me know if you have more questions.
