> Do you mean you added desipramine to the Parnate, or took it alone?

I switched to desipramine, without the Parnate. It seemed to work about as well as the Parnate had, but I was looking for something that would help more. Plus the serum level monitoring would have been too much of a pain (and too expensive, more importantly!).

> MAOI+TCA is something I've been considering, but my doc is quite wimpy so I'm not sure if it'll ever happen.

Supposedly, the combination is seldom better than one of the two types of ADs alone is. It does help people every now and then, tho'.

How high a dose of Nardil were you on? My problem with Nardil was poopout, and increasing the dose didn't make it start working again.

> I don't think I want to try two hours apart -- I might be tempted to raise the dose + the number of effing pills I have to swallow.

The whole point of it would be so that you could raise the dose! Like I said, I managed to get up to six times a day. That might turn out to be enough for you, I don't know.
