I understand that fear all too well..we gotta keep on trying though, maybe this on will be the one..
I am on the patch and I like the MAOI. I don't have to worry about diet this way but from what I have read, coffee and cola's are ok to drink. The only think is from what I hear, Parnate can be activiting and the caffeiene can exacerbate the activation. I can drink more or less coffee depending on what I am taking. With the patch, which is activating, my coffee intake has not changed. I guess you will have to see how much is too much for you on Parnate or if it even makes a difference. I wish you the very best of luck this time around. Let us know how you are doing.
