How long does Parnate take to kick in?

Posted by Malcolm64 on April 29, 2007, at 10:30:48

And what's the theraputic dose? I'm up to 20 mgs until Tuesday, then I go up to 30 mg on which I will remain until I see my doc around May 15th. I'm just curious, what's the max doseage you can be on before you know whether the med is going to work or not?

And how can you tell if the med is working? Hypomania (which was wonderful) was the reaction I felt when I knew that the Nardil was working when I took it a year ago. Unfortunately, it slowly dissipated to the point where I was no longer getting a boost from the Nardil.

I'm sorry if my posts seem repetitive, but I'm getting really anxious to find out whether Parnate is going to work or not.

So far, my sleep hasn't been affected at all on 20 mgs of Parnate, which I know is notorious for causing sleep problems. So I'm wondering if b/c I'm not having that problem (yet) means that the drug is not working. Or perhaps it hasn't yet built up in my system.

Ok, I guess my anxiety is really showing, but I'm just getting so restless for SOMETHING to work!!

At the same time, I'm bit embarrased to be a man and having these problems. Men are supposed to be tough, and I guess I'm just not tough enough!!
