> > I've been taking 60 mg/d parnate for over 20 years, and have had 4 major depressive episodes (we've tried trycyclics, ssri's, buproprion, lithium w parnate {double the side effects but no effective difference}, edranox, but my dysthymia spirals down into depression, and we have to go back to parnate). Anyway this year, I couldn't pull out of a major depression; we tried remeron and it was no good for me. Now we're trying 60mg parnate with resperidone. I'm feeling much better, but it's only been a week. I've been on disability this year for the first time, and really want to get back to work. Has anyone had experience with parnate + resrperidol, or been on parnate for a very long time?

Thanks Scott. Nardil is not very effective for me. My doctor told me that maoi type a does some crossover to type b (probably vice versa as well), and the type a (parnate) works for me best. All the other types of anti-depressants we've tried (trying to fine a safer medicine that was at least as effective) have not been successful, and I've alays been 'compliant' with the restrictions. What dosage of resperidol did you find most effective, what kind of side-effects and / or restrictions did you face, both getting to using it and after your system settled down with it? Thanks for your response. JM
