> To help with the sleep, I would not recommend taking benzodiazepines. A better option might be Ambien or Sonata. I've often taken these for periods of months (a year one time), and gone off cold turkey with absolutely no withdrawawl. These are pretty remarkable drugs, and very effective. Have you tried them?

Have never tried them, and I thought that they were contraindicated with MAOIs. I'd like to know for sure about that because I'd be willing to try either one in the future, if it's safe with Parnate. Maybe you know about it.
> I'm glad the Parnate worked for you again. Not sure if you recall (or if you knew in the first place) but I trialed Parnate for a while in August of 2003. Wonderful drug...very few side-effects, nice stimulating effect, and the first drug to truly act as an antidepressant.
> So what's the catch? I had spontaneous hypertensive episodes (not food induced). Bummer. A very sad event...I loved Parnate, but it may well have been dangerous for me.

I think I recall seeing your posts about that. . .it's extremely unusual to have hypertensive crises that aren't food induced. Well. . I'm happy that you've found peace with Nardil.
