Hi Girl Interrupted:

Yes, that happened to me big-time. I started Parnate May 4th and didn't get the "WOW, I feel GOOD!" feeling until a couple of weeks ago. I always exercise 4 or 5 times a week in classes and walk on other days. I think it was for a month that I didn't/couldn't do anything. One day I fell down, into my teacher, in class and she freaked. A couple of other times my feet and legs would go on without me and I nearly fell. I also fell out my back door into a wrought iron wall and still have a swollen/bruised ankle and knee.I was forcing myself. So I just stopped doing anything much until I felt better.

So I think it took me 3 months. Now I feel really good, have very little hypotension, can exercise and walk or anything else. The only side effect I have now is a very very dry mouth. I chew gum and drink lots of water.
I do take Provigil and caffeine tablets for fatigue. I also take nortriptyline 25mg at night and have not had insomnia.
I hope you feel better a lot quicker than I did, but don't worry. It will happen in it's own sweet time. I feel better than I have in 15 years! And my pdoc had made me promise I would take Parnate for 6 months no matter what. So I feel lucky it was only 3 months before the magic happened!

Hang in there, and
Good luck to you!!
