Hi Robert,

How are you doing? Sorry about the delay in replying. I hope your depression and weakness have improved. What dose of Parnate are you taking now?

>But my BP is lowering at various points to systolic 105-110 and I can't figure out why.

Reduced BP is a common side effect of MAOIs. Certain MAOIs, such as pargyline, were occasionally used (years ago) as a treatment for high blood pressure. MAOIs probably reduce BP by altering the function of the sympathetic nervous system.

Have you tried increasing your salt intake?

>I have been taking ibuprofen 3 x 200mg over the last four days because of an inflammed throat, but stopped today to exclude it as a possible cause (though I am aware that it should raise BP).

Low doses shouldn't affect BP. High doses might raise BP slightly.
