> Hey Coach,
> You OK? I hope you are so happy that you haven't had a moment to spare. Leave me a one liner if you want but let me know you're alright, okay?
Hey, Ya, Im still here. Been away for 2 days.. Coach lol..
Any rush at 50mgs? I went up to 70 on dec 9th. I dont think I felt a rush.. I imagine the higher we go the less rush we'll get as the ratio gets smaller and smaller.
*****How are you feeling?*******
Hope there is some change, I wish time could go faster during the moments of dispare waiting for an AD to kick in, or support that makes all the difference..
I read from another post you can sleep like a breez (well sorta). sounds like u really get the afternoon nacolepsy! Me not so much.
I went to 70mgs because:
-Parnate was leveling out
-Anxiety started coming back(It still was working as an awesome AD!!! Im sure not depressed at all, good motivation)
-I really need the Antianxiety effect so ill keep going slowly from now on till I get it. I bet Ill be good at 70 or 80.
Since the antianxiety effect was getting less and less at 60mg's, probably because another amine is kicking in strong, or because the anxiety creating amines that are alreaty working (eg. DA 4 me) are still kicking in stronger, or both factors, have led me to drink more and use more clonazepam.
yep for the last couple weeks Ive been drinking about 6 coolers a night, or 12 if I wanted to get drunk and in a mania (I still cant figure out why alcohol makes me so happily hypomanic and totally anxiety free like nothing else in the world. I do know its because Parnate is working. Without an AD that works well I dont get that way.)
The clonazepam i was using more of aswell, some nights 2mg's before bed.
Good news is that today is a turning point. I have a new gym membership and im gonna go 6 days a week( I love working out). One of my best friends who drinks an insanly large amount moved two hours away so I wont be tempted to drink and when the antianxiety from 70 kicks in I wont want to drink. As long as it works im fine with a couple glasses of wine every few days.
I just wrote Vincent a big post on Parnate, I hope he is doing ok.
Melatonin eh... hmm I better try some. I hate sleeping. insomnia+vivid dreams and nightmares..
Every thing else is A ok. Very few side effects compared to the serotonin, Norepinephrine, Dopamine re-uptake inhibitor family type of AD's and Nardil.
OK I admit there is the same amount of side effects but I dont mind these ones nearly as much.
And Parnate is actually working so I dont care about the side effects. AHAHAH I think the illness has met its match. Lets see who wins!
