Sometimes the brain adaptations we want to happen take longer than anticipated. Sometimes it takes 6 to 8 weeks at a particular dose for changes to become evident and things more stable. Sometimes 12 weeks for the stronger effect. 16 weeks even better. That's the general trend of longterm AD studies anyway.
If it were me I would probably just hang on and give it at least 2 weeks at the current dose. If that didn't show any hint of anything, then I would increase the dose. I say that because there are people who only respond to higher than normal doses of parnate. I've heard of 150mg before and I'm sure others here have heard of ultra high doses. I think in most cases those high doses would cause intolerable side effects with most people. But if you are doing ok with side effects, then that should be manageable.
More time, and then more dose if needed. That's what I would do. We're all different.
