Everyone reacts differently to Parnate. I have a form of bipolar depression. I have been on Parnate several times and have alternated it with Nardil as you are now. Whatever mild stimulation there was during the first few weeks of Parnate treatment dissipated for me. I believe that Parnate can be effective for GAD and social anxiety disorder. I am hoping that it would also be as useful as Nardil for treating panic disorder. However, Parnate has not been studied as closely for these indications as has Nardil. Parnate is an old drug, and there is very little impetus to continue working with it investigationally. However, I did find one group of investigators who did so.
In this double-blind study, their conclusions were that Parnate was effective for treating panic disorder and social anxiety disorder, and that 60 mg/day was much more effective than 30 mg/day.
Good luck with Parnate.
