Re: PARNATE weight gain???? Jasmine

In reply to PARNATE weight gain????, posted by Jasmine on May 1, 2004, at 13:17:09

> After 4 months on Nardil, I was horrified to find that I had gained 18lbs. On my tiny 5'5" frame, that made a huge difference. I have never in my life weighed more than 110lbs and suddenly I just ballooned up. I realize it was because I had given into the sugar cravings, but when I tried to correct the problem by proper diet and powerwalking no less than 5 miles a day....I found that after 3 weeks I hadn't even lost a pound. It was disappointing.

> So anyway, I switched to Parnate in hopes that it would be just as effective with my social anxiety as Nardil was, but without the weight gain.
>
> I'd like to hear some opinions on this. What has been everyone's experience with weight gain on this drug? Also, do you think it will be a good drug for controlling social anxiety? This is pretty much my last hope aside from cocktailing a bunch of drugs. Thanx in advance for your replies!

jasmine, chemist here....i have personal experience with parnate....what is your meds cocktail? my experience with parnate was weight loss, due to *strict* diet alteration (whether good, bad, or ugly) and that parnate (tranylcypromine) is one chemical bond short of amphetamine, although there are very skewed data in the literature that metabolism of parnate does NOT produce amphetamine.....let me know, and all the best, chemist
