Sorry to endless harass you SLS. I don't know if you recall me mentioning it, but I have a stressful time coming up over the next 2 weeks. A friend from overseas has decided to visit (with very little warning), and we're going to be attending a film festival together, which requires at least some concentrative power on my part.
I had been on 60mg of Parnate, which was helping keep my mood somewhat stable, but was too stimulating. I take 1.5mg of Clonazepam at night and 0.5mg in the morning, which was added to try and counteract the overstimulation, but didn't help.
When I was titrating up, the best dose for ADHD was around 30mg, so I (stupidly) figured if I just dropped back to 30mg over the course of a week, I'd reap the same benefits. But the past two days I've just been feeling spacey, tired, depressed. I wasn't even really taking into consideration that fluctuating levels of MAO would affect things etc.
Anyway, my friend arrives in two days. Since it's only been a week, do you think returning to 60mg is probably the wisest option? Otherwise, is there going to be an adjustment period with any other dose I choose (30mg, or 45mg, which was also kinda useful .. though neither very much for mood). I thought about doing that and maybe upping the morning clonazepam dose to 1mg. This whole thing would just be temporary. Afterwards, I'd taper off the Parnate, and slower lower my Clonazepam dose.
