> Day 10 of parnate ... let the side effect parade begin. Currently 3:49 AM and just spent the last 4 hours tossing and turning WIDE AWAKE. But that is fine because my erectile dysfunction and heart palpations are taking my mind off the insomnia. And also wondering when my medicalert bracelet will come in the mail so I don't DYE from a demerol injection in the ER. To top it off .... I am still completely depressed .... all the side effects/none of the benefits. Figures.

From Mixedstates,
Sorry to hear that you are having negative experiences with parnate. I can say for me that after attemting countless med cocktails that parnate has been truly a ssavior for me. It worked even better after combined with lamictal.
As far as side affects I have found them to be minimal,sure there are extensive food and drugs that are containdicated but for me that is a smal price to pay for such an effective drug such as parnate. With regard to insomnia that has been a problem with me,I would encourage you to discuss this with your pdoc as there are alternatives to help this benzos,ambien(at 20 mg for me to work) and when the ambien does not(usually when mood is extra manic)I take zyprexa and restful sleep is achieved for me. You have not taken parnate for long give it some time,work with your pdoc and seriosly understand the lifestyle modifications that are required when taking an maoi. Best of Luck,
