Right now I'm on 2400 mg neurontin a day plus the 40 - 60 mg percocet. After the operation I wish to ditch the percocet as soon as possible. After each dose of percocet get a quick ad bump than as it wears off get this low grade depression. I find neurontin by itself has anti-anxiety effects and some ad effects. When I tried it with parnate months ago the parnate cancelled it out and the neurontin didn't work and I stopped it.(neurontin)
P-doc thinks I am bi-polar 2. Neurontin can throw me into mania where I feel very aggressive.
Wonder if low dose lithium would help.

So with atypical depression ,bipolar 2, and adhd

1. start with parnate and nortriptyline
2. start with parnate and low dose lithium (has to be low dose to avoid side effects)
3. start with parnate,low dose nortriptyline and lithium
4. start with parnate, low dose nortriptyline and lamictal

and anything you think might get the parnate working...

Interesting thing about parnate. Raises the important neurotransmitters involved in mood...might not work by itself but gives you the material to work with if another med is needed...
