> No i posted that to djmm as he said >
> I know he said that and i know theres is a old data sheet that i actualy have here that implies what he said,about no more than a single tab.However after speaking with the company,and posting a more previous verison of the data sheet,you can see they dont mentionion NOT dosing multiple tabs,BUT in fact do mention it.
> There has been a number of updates to parnates data,sheet going from max 30 mg to max 60 mg,theres pubmed ranges going well above 100,so obviously this med was old enough and given up on quick enough to where the known pharmacology of it is stll very very iffy.
> I have been on the drug a very long time,i was aware of the info djmmm posted to my question,although gratefeful for the time he took to reply,am shocked that he would assume i dident know the very baisics of the mdication,and hrpertensive crisis.
> The reason i asked such a question was i wanted to get past common data sheet answers such as he provided and wanted real life experiaces such as your and a few others who have used the drug in high amounts,i just dont know EXACTLY who they are.
NOTE: I did NOT say "no one should be taking parnate in higher than a single dose increment...(single 10mg tab)" I believe you have misread my post.
FWIW, I take 30mg in the morning and another 20mg at noon...
I said not to take a high dose (i think it was 50mg) at one time-- as a single dose... my comments on hypertension were based on the specific reaction resulting from the single 50mg dose.
also, I assumed you DIDNT know a lot of the info on hypertension-- only because you seemed to be questioning the "uneasy feeling" and the "sweating", after consuming a single 50mg dose... and then stating that you were thinking about taking 60mg at once.
