>Re the sleeplessness. I'm taking Parnate and it also keeps me from getting (and staying) asleep.At 20-30 mg. it only has a mild effect but at 40 and up it is pronounced. The best remedy, short of one of the drugs mentioned, is to space it so that you don't take any after dinner. I think the effect may recede slightly in time. If you think Parnate if bad in this regard, you should try Nardil. I think I averaged about 4-5 hours a night the years I was on it. Phil

So, IF I can work my way back up to the dose I used to take of 50 (of which I took 30 in am and 20 in the afternoon) I will now have to take only 10 mg at a time, like every 2hours between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm? or do you take more than one pill at a time - I've heard from others that taking more than 10 mg at a time causes them problems. At the rate I'm going this time with only 5 mgs and moving up slowly, I imagine I'll be one to have problems with taking multiple pills at one time.
Also, I had the opposit effect, I found Nardil more sedating and had the best naps during the day. Now, not only do I not sleep well at night, I'm WIDE AWAKE all day - and again only on 5 mgs!
