> I take 70 mg daily.....i try to take less whenever possable.But yess if i have a therputic response i will take 20 mg,if otherwise i over amp myself.
> I know this sounds wierd,but i have been on it close to 5 years,and im very familiar with its onset.I did take it at a consistent dose and time my first year or two,but i find it more effective if listen to how im feeling.
> This of course is not somethig id advise anyone to do,especialy a person just on it.One example is if i am not having any response,ill begin to take 40 mg doses,in a day or two usualy ill achieve a therputic response,if i stay at this high dosage it will turn to depression and make me tired,so when i hit the range for me it is best to begin to lower it back,again this is only after very exstensive self montering of my reaction to dosages,which i achieved through years of familiarility with the med.

I know you've had some problems lately with Parnate. Could it be possible your changing the doses around often may be effecting it's AD response? I think there is a difference between the MAO inhibition and stimulant effects time wise. After increasing the dosage, the stimulant effects are almost immediate whereas the MAOi AD response may take up to 8 weeks or so to max out. Could it be you're over-relying on the stimulant effect rather than MAO inhibition? Just a thought...
