> What do you use to help you sleep?
Clonazepam, though I'm required to take it about an hour before bed to fall asleep. If that doesn't work, I might add a tiny (0.25mg) dose of Melatonin. for sleep onset. Regardless, my quality of sleep on Parnate is quite poor at present.
I like Cyproheptadine because it's short-acting, but the 5-HT2C antagonism worsens my OCD.
I've used Mangosteen (a 5HT-1 antagonist) in the past with some success, but it's too weak to overcome Parnate's effects.
Glycine (2-3mg) can also be helpful, but again does nothing on Parnate.
