> It just goes to show that different meds work differently for different people. I have been on parnate for 3 wks and currently taking 50mg a day. While this has not been 4 wks or greater, I have noticed a big difference. My sleep is fantastic at night, I have a tremendous amount of energy during the day, no significant sexual side effects, weight gain is not a problem and there seems to be an increase in my comfort level with social situations etc...
> I just hope it continues, but for me 50 mg (20 mg at rising, 20 mg before lunch and 10 after lunch or so) is a wonder. Thanks to Elizabeth for the suggestion of taking the last dose before 3p.

You're welcome. It's the same recommendation I've always heard for caffeine. (Parnate's half-life -- not relevant for MAO inhibition since it's irreversible, but may be useful to keep in mind when considering its stimulant properties -- is 2 hours or if you take your last dose at 3pm, less than 10% is still around by 11pm.)

Glad to hear the Parnate is helping. I wish I could figure out a way to go above 30mg/day -- it was a good drug for me other than that.
