parnate and fludrocortisone

Posted by blackcat23 on November 9, 2005, at 15:23:39

I've been on Parnate for a little over a week now (current dose 30mg-- 10 mg three times daily), and have already seen great results with mood, energy, motivation, and desire to socialize. I'm very excited about this, but I've had quite severe postural hypotension (dizziness when standing too suddenly, especially in the morning and evenings). Two nights ago, I passed out when I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and injured my chin/hip. My doctor prescribed fludrocortisone to fix the postural hypotension.

Has anyone else tried fludrocortisone? Does it help? How long before you saw results? Did you notice visible water retention?

Other questions for Parnate users:
Are you able to exercise without dizziness? I haven't tried yet, but would like to eventually.
I've found that caffeine (coffee or soda) enhances the effects of the medicine. Do you drink coffee?
Has Parnate affected your appetite? I haven't had much desire to eat since taking it.

Thanks for your help!
