Re: First time Parnate -- common side effects?

I feel like Parnate with Nortriptylline is a synergestic powerhouse for me. Maybe because my pdoc has used this duo for 40 years and feels it makes the Parnate much smoother and more effective. Also, I have not had insomnia which historically has been a problem for me.

I am more tired than I had hoped, but the Provigil and caffeine tablets help that. Extreme fatigue has always been a hallmark of my psych problems. Much of that is gone.

I have so few side effects that most of the time I feel "clean" of chemicals in my body, except for some bouts of bad dry mouth. I have to remind myself that I am on an MAOI and not to order bleu cheese dressing on my salad or something dumb like that.

I'm really surprised that you had any side effects after two years! Hopefully, that wont be the case this time. Do you think your pdoc would let you take nortriptyline with the parnate? There is quite a bit a literature that recommends it.

I have read several places (which I don't remember) that Parnate poopout isn't very common but when it does happen you can get it going again by tapering down really fast, then tapering up again really fast. I'm planning on trying that if I get poopout.
