Expert lol wow wutg all the flattering names im called in life uh hem lol expert is almost a shock to my nervous system,but thanks for the thought.
I will leave you with some parnate trivia though,there was only one article on the net as to this drugs origin,i have it some where,but it explains why so little is known of it from its company,and why they have out to date 3 different data sheets with max doseage and restriction list.
Parnate was made by a single chemicst,in his home,in his basement which was a fully equipped lab.He was constantly working on treating his own parkinson disease,and parnate was one of his results,after its use he releiased it was no help for his condition but saw the mood lifting properties it had,so he sold it to glaxco and they took it on,not knowing very much about it,and to this day if u call glaxco you can literally hear there lips as they read word for word about parnate off a screen which u can find urself on the net.
The company glaxco is clueless about there parnate product,they sent me a packet asking me to document everything i could about it.
They have 3 offical data sheets,.....the first lists 10 mg as the theraputic dose,yess a single tab a day........and an increase of NO MORE than 30 mg total under strict docters care.
The second states 30 mg as a starting ddose with a max of 60 mg under supervision.
And the last,well i have not seen this with my own eyes,and not sure if its actualy a data sheet or just a fact,but from pubmed are documents from glaxco stating that 100 mg as a max dosage.
So we went from a 30 mg max to 100,call em one day for kicks and ask em about it,tell them u want to speak to one of there actualy pharm techs about a technical aspect,and even then youll laugh as u hear them stutter and trip over themselves trying to act like they know anything about parnate.
lol If anyone cares enough i can find this article on the creator of the drug,oh and fyi thats how parnate came about,NOT MAOIS,maois have something to do with being discovered in hospital settings long ago.
