In reply to long term use of parnate parnate w resperidol, posted by JulieMargolis on September 20, 2001, at 12:31:21

> 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?

Julie,
I've never been on resperidone with Parnate, but I've taken Parnate for most of the past 13 years at dosages from 40 to 70mg. When I first experienced some poop out, I tried thyroid medicine and then, lithium. Neither of them worked. I started adding ritalin in January of this year and that really helps. After a recent consult with a "pharmacological guru", I just increased the Parnate to 80mg with the go ahead to go up to 120mg, if necessary. I hope the resperidone works for you. It sounds like something I should try.

Michael
