Thanks everyone four your answers ;-) At least, I feel that i'm not alone in the world with my "little" problems...

To answer to d/r, my exercise regime look like....hummm...nothing...I don't have the energy do to anything, just take a walk make me feel a lot tired. I know that exercise is good to reduce the anxiety, I was use to walk more than 2 hours a day last year...but since my social phobia and general anxiety problem became more difficult to handle, I just stop taking long walk.

For Mav27, thanks for your support ;-) I also read a lot about high BP and orthostatic hypotension and I also found some strange things on that subjects. IF I well understand, you stop the Parnate and the Nardil because of the orthostatic hypotension? For now, which drug you take to help you?

Orthostatic hypotension don't fade away after 3 months on Nardil, so I wonder if it will fade away on Parnate? I try to stay on the Nardil at the time, hoping for that problem to resolve by itself but at the end I was not able to handle the orthostatic hypotension.

Hihg blood pressure is not a big deal for me, I know I will not die if I do 150/90 ...even if it's often like this, sure, that 's not good for the health on a long-term view, but what I can do? ORthostatic hypotension is not tolerable for me...if "Florinef" don't help me and worse my high blood pressure problem, I don't see why I will lost my time again another 3 months on something who I will end up stoping cold turkey...

Anyway, I will give it another chance today and tomorrow, devide my dose in 3 shoots, take only one pill at 10mg AM, 10mg noon and 10mg before 5PM, since the Parnate don't worse the insomnia I had already before.

If the orthostatic hypotension problem don't fade away and become more frequent or worst, I think I will stop the Parnate and ask for something else.

I wonder if Manerix (Moclobemide) is worth the trial? I know it's less powerfull than a regular Maoi and results on social phobia and anxiety look like the ones gets with regular SSRI's... but I read that orthostatic hypotension is less a problem on it...

Maybe I will try the Cymbalta...I don't stand the Effexor-xr so I wonder if it will help me???

Maybe I can also try one of the TCA's I never try (Nortriptyline), my psychiatrist talk to me about it the last time...I don't know if it's worth the trail, tca's don'T help a lot with social phobia directly, they help on panic disorder, anxiety and depression but not on the social phobia...

What I hate the most is that I feel an improve in my social phobia and anxiety in general since the increase at 30mg/day of Parnate, but the side effects are just killing me...

I will post an update soon on my situation...Thanks a lot everyone and happy xmas!!! ;-)
