It's great to hear that both of you have had relief from your OH. I hope I will be able to report similar results soon! Ilene, do you take an MAOI as well? Was that the cause of your OH? Perhaps increasing my dose to .2 mg would help me.

For the past three days, I have taken 0.1 mg in a single dose when I get up in the morning. Would it be helpful to take it twice a day? Since taking Parnate, I have consitstently noticed the faintness when standing in the evenings before going to bed and in the middle of the night when getting up to go to the bathroom. Oddly, it's not as bad during the day, although I did notice it yesterday after climbing subway stairs. Scary! Fainting in public in NY would not be a good thing.

So far, the fludrocortisone hasn't made a big difference in the evening dizziness. Maybe taking a an additional .1 mg later in the day in addition would be helpful. Thanks for the continued feedback. I hope this hypotension will be resolved since I have found the Parnate to be very effective for my mood. Thanks so much!
