> Hello, Just checking in to see how the Parnate is going? I am a couple of days short of 2 weeks now. I am still feeling the SE's of coming off of the Paxil though. It is improving. My mind seems to be coming back to me. I have been in a fog for so very long due to high doses of Paxil. I can't really tell if the Parnate is working, I do seem to be sleeping better and the terrorizing dreams at night have gone away pretty much. The diet hasn't be much of a problem, still getting use to it. I did have a slight reaction to some pickle relish that was in some fresh chicken salad. It wasn't bad but I could feel it. I am on 30mg a day. I break that up into 3 doses through out the day. I did discover that I was taking to much hydroxyzine and have backed off considerably which has helped with sleeping. It will keep you awake if you take to much. My question is can you take Ambien or something like that with an MAOI? I can take Benadryl but it seems to effect my meds. Kind of makes me depressed feeling. Hope you all are doing well. Let me know how things are going with the Parnate. I have a doctors appt. tomorrow. She is very open to things and that is great. I think she will raise my dose, but I may stay at 30 for a while longer. What do you all think?
> Thanks So Much, bluebird

Hi bluebird. I've been taking Parnate for three months now, and currently am on 80 mg per day. I mostly have insomnia problems after the dosage is raised and now treat this only with Ambien when required, as I found that benzos seemed to seemed to diminish the therapeutic effect of Parnate. Ambient seems a lot 'cleaner' in terms of after effects. My diagnosis is major depression, atypical and treatment resistant. I'm tolerating this reasonably high dosage of Parnate quite well and it is slowly bringing me out of the pit. I estimate that I am experiencing about two thirds of full remission of depressive symptoms. I hope this helps.
