Well thats a relief cause I had quit with my eve coctail (wine) hour, maybe if I can add that back I'll feel better about this waiting. Also, I like taking my Parnate dose all at once, Scott said he'd never heard of that, or never heard Doc scribe it that way. You think its ok 50mg as one dose?
> > Do you mind telling me your dosing schedule from beginning? How long on each dose, how long you've been on it, if you're responding? Anything else you can tell me? Do you take anything that you think effects your result (augment, adjunct, d/r's secret homemade recipe?)

> 20mg memantine - i am impatient, and think polypharmacy is a good idea, so i added this, as the only otehr option to modify glutamateric system with some evidence for unipoal depression is lamotrigine, and i didn't want to worry about rash, and memantine also prevents stim tolerance
> various neutraceutical things. w-3 oil, ALCAR, very low dose lithium, b-complex, d3, minerals,

So since I can't tolerate provigil, do you think its ok to take small amount of ritalin 5mg 3xday, along with my Parnate,(up to 50mg day)? And add memantine? I have zero energy, its starting to really interfere with my life. I stopped Ritalin (after years of a friendly relationship) a bit before starting Parnate as per PDoc. Now the challenge would be to get Ritalin prescribed.

> dysphoric mood ended with the tranylcypromine.

So you are happy with (results of) Parnate? Glad your dysphoric mood is gone, just wondered if it did all you wanted it to. At 60mg, you feel no lift in any depressive symptoms other than dysphoric mood? (Maybe you answered that next)

anxiety and sluggishness/daydreaming/laziness which i don't think are caused by depression it does not help with.

Remember reading post about what happened when he went from Nardil (Canada ran out) to Parnate, I believe overnight, then I think back to Nardil. It was a quick (couple days?) taper. Anyway, outcome was PRES. If you don't know him could you do a search and check it out? I don't want to give Shawn bad advice. He already had that bad experience with 105mg Nardil.

Sorry, thought it was common term, I believe from posts re: PheonixI that its bleeding in the brain, causing pressure, causing stroke. Something like that. Can result from HTC.

Thanks d/r,

Just getting frustrated.
