> Hello.
> If you're on other medications, the Parnate may be interacting with them and causing the hypotension. Definitely ask your doctor. I was on Parnate and didn't have problems with hypotension until I added Lamictal and then had some really scary episodes with blacking out. I wish you the best.

Hi ;-)

Well, I will tell my doctor about it for sure, I see him next week. Orthostatic hypotension seem to fade away with time, more fast than the hypertension I have since I increase my dosage to 40mg/day.

I know that Valium can worse the hypotensive symptoms and cause more orthostatic hypotension but since i'm on the Parnate, I take less Valium than before, it's like I don't need it anymore...I just continue because I don't want to withdraw too fast of it and make me feel worse in general.

A lot of others factors seem to contribute a lot to the hyper-hypotension comming from the Parnate. The general physical health of the person who take the Parnate is another factor. I don't exercise a lot, I definitly need to be in a more good shape and I know it. I also need to stop smooking, but since cigarette have a AD effect, I doubt it's a good time to stop smooking.

Bur for now everything is ok. I mean, I see better days and worse also. Every time I increase my dose, I seem to react badly, but everything seem to fade away in 6 or 7 days...I suppose it's the time my body need to adjust to the new dose.

So thanks for your encouragement, you are very nice ;-) I wish you the best also!!!
