I spoke to my doctor on the phone today, hoping that he would let me increase the dosage of desipramine. He said no. He said that he wanted to see the results of the blood test for desipramine levels first. Logical. I then asked him if he were worried about cardiac side effects. That didn't seem to be his problem, but he demonstrated to me that he is very afraid of using this drug in combination with Parnate. I now have my doubts that he is going to prescribe the 300mg I need. I have been on that dosage before.

I might have to start planning to see another doctor if mine refuses to increase the dosage of desipramine. I'll either see my old doctor in Princeton or see the doctor at Columbia in NYC that I once had a consultation with. I would place myself on the 300mg before hand.
