I just finished reading an updated data sheet from the manfufacurer about max dose.This particular one,as ive noticed changes constantly to this sheet,has parnate at 30 mg dose.
It recomends to take parnate 20mg upon waking,10 mg per afternoon.
Also what i had said was klonopin actualy makes higher doses of parnate worse,they clash.Ablifly allowed me to take more of a higher dose of parnate.
Theres no way i could take parnate in 10 mg increments,i doubt im the only person who takes at the very least 20 mg increments.Heres is a snip and the actual linkk i got it from...
"Dosage And Administration: Dosage should be adjusted to the requirements of the individual patient. If the patient responds to therapy, the response is usually seen within 48 hours to 3 weeks after starting medication.
Recommended starting dosage is 20 mg/day (10 mg in the morning and 10 mg in the afternoon).
Continue this dosage for 2 to 3 weeks.
If no signs of a response appear, increase dosage to 30 mg daily (20 mg upon arising and 10 mg in the afternoon).
Continue this dosage for at least 1 week. If no improvement occurs, continued administration is unlikely to be beneficial. Although dosages above 30 mg/day have been used, it should be borne in mind that the incidence and severity of side effects may increase as dosage is raised. Dosage increases should be made in increments of 10 mg/day and ordinarily at intervals of 1 to 3 weeks.
When a satisfactory response is obtained, dosage may be reduced to a maintenance level.
Some patients will be maintained on 20 mg/day; many will need only 10 mg daily. "
