> It was probably a mistake to generalize. The first doctor who prescribed Parnate for me told me that. Sure enough, although I was suffering from one of the worst depressions of my life, the first 10mg gave me some relief. The relief was almost immediate, like a stimulant. I was still deeply depressed, but I had the strength to hang around for the next 10 mg. It did take about 2 weeks with an eventual dosage of 40 mg to work completely. I may have just been lucky to experience that first "kick."

Hi Mike. I think your experience is quite common for folks who do succeed on Parnate. Several people mentioned that they had an immediate stimulent effect. If I had felt any "kick" I might have hung in for longer, but it's too hard going through both fatigue and nausea, and feeling that it will probably not succeed.
