Parnate thoughts

I'm really glad to hear so much about Parnate's effect on different people.

This drug is really fascinating, and appears to have pretty unique effects.

I found it really interesting to hear about Parnate causing excessive emotion.

The reason I can't tolerate other AD's and especially antipsychotics is because they "made me stupid" and messed up my emotions. Since I have no life, my reading and creative work is all that keeps me going most of the time. Take that away, and no "happy pill" is going to make me feel that life is worth living.

I found Parnate truly remarkable because it was the first psychotropic I had ever taken that didn't make me feel dull and not-all-there. When I raised the dose to 40mg the effect was remarkable. I felt fatigued (a SE that went away) but the turmoil, self-hatred, anxiety, etc. that was churning around in my head suddenly calmed, and I realized I couldn't remember the last time I could think so clearly. I chilled out on the sofa and read Kant's "Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals," and not only had no difficulty understanding it, but really ENJOYED IT! It was like a miracle.

I think my emotions are more extreme on Parnate--I've had horrible episodes of suicidal depression plenty of times. That's a price I'm more than willing to pay for having my brain back, being able to get out of bed every morning, and being able to really relate to the close friends I have and fully experience those rare moments of real happiness.
