The effects of Parnate on neurotransmitters are produced differently from those of stimulants like Adderall.

Stimulants usually are dopamine agonists, ie they cause higher amounts of dopamine to be made, in a dose-related way.. The rhythm of dopamine production is influenced by when you take the pill.

MAOIs, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, reduce the presence of an enzyme, MAO (monoamine oxidase), which breaks down neurotransmitters. Therefore, Parnate and Nardil, for example, don't directly affect your body's production of neurotransmitters, they reduce the catabolism of them. Thus the levels and production is your body's own natural production, not one that is somewhat artificially enhanced.

Parnate does have a metabolite that's amphetamine-like, so you can have some feeling of energy (often, but not always) from it-- but the main AD effect isn't caused by that.

As with all ADs, you really have to try it, to see how it affects you.
