I can't know for sure, but the things you experienced immediately upon raising the dosage of Parnate from 20mg to 30mg might have been a temporary effect. At 20mg, I doubt you had any significant MAO inhibition. It is likely you were feeling the amphetamine-like effects that the Parnate molecule possesses. Once you reached 30mg, you might have had some inhibition, but not enough to produce an improvement. Instead, you found yourself in an "in-between" state that produced the fatigue and dysphoria. Most people do not respond well to Parnate until the dosage reaches the range of 40-80mg. Feeling "weird" at 30mg might have been a good sign. At 40mg, I would think that insomnia would return. I think that it is unproductive to give up on a drug because of insomnia without first trying to treat the insomnia aggressively.
