> I have been on Parnate for over a year now, and it is the only anti-depressant that has worked for me. I take 40 mg. per day, and as Justherself54 said, the main thing is to adhere to the dietary restrictions. I still eat pizza as it does not typically have aged cheese, for example. I drink white wine if I go out to eat rather than red wine or beer. I loved some foods that I can't eat, but so it is.
> I took Parnate many years ago too, for about five years, and it worked wonders for me. As an added benefit, I lost weight and am losing weight again. It has amphetamine like qualities and so keeps me alert too. I feel like I have more energy and so do more and so lose weight.
> I was able to go off of Parnate years ago and was on no antidepressant for around 10 years or more. Then some stuff came up, and I ended up getting depressed again, and so back to the Parnate. I am also in therapy, though, three times per week, and the combo is what does the job for me.

Many thanks for above information Justherself54 and Zeba , i am so pleased that Parnate has had an effect however big or small for you both , was Parnate the last resort of anti/dep meds ? The reason for that question , over the last decade or more i have tried so many different meds the list is endless , i have treatment resistant depression , i dont know if i said in my mail before , i also have SAD , OCD , ANXIETY/DEP , Zoloft helped in the beginning , but had a manic effect , which was good and bad , i had improvement in concentration and a social life for once , much like anything else it didnt take away the other symptoms sadly for me and then Poop out , at present i am withdrawing from Tofrinal, thank goodness , i was put in care 2 months ago , as i was very suicidal over life events etc , so treating psych doctor in care , suggested trying above med..yuk !! i came home from a month in there , family friends didnt need to tell me that i was much worse then before , i was told at the end of stay there , there is nothing more we can do in there , i was in such a state , lacking any concentration self-esteem that i didnt/couldnt question how they come to that conclusion , any way i am rambling now , thanks again for information , i have concerns about diet , blood pressure etc , oh well i have come this far , may i have a little " piece of peace " for a little while at least..thankyou again and please if you can keep in contact..i lack a lot of confidence was SO good that i had your kind thoughts..oh one more thing i am also doing therapy twice a far i just so need stablity to go further with that..
