> So has Parnate pretty much whiped out all your anxiety as well as depression? I ask because I

Well I've been on it less than 2 months and I have heard some people havn't even started to feel anxiolytic effects till after 3 (but they were strong effects -- worth waiting for).

My depression isn't gone 100% that's for sure.
As for anxiety, I took parnate just for depression not expecting any effect on my anxiety... but what could only be described as Social Terror is now almost gone. I mean I used to be afraid of my friends, ... now I am barely anxious around cute girls :)

>am GAD/dep/BPII and am getting to the end of the med list. An MAOI might be my next choice and then serious contemplation of ECT if that is not successful.

Yeah GAD is definately 100% whiped out. And I'm still at the lowest dose (30 mg).

There are lots of options other than ECT. Maybe ECT is the safest, I don't know. But you can always go for a stimulant, anti-parkinson med, lamotrigine, lithium, opiate, thyroid, antipsychotic, beta blocker, anti-cortisol, substance P antagonist, and many different augmentation strategies as well ..........

take care :)
