It can't hurt to see if modafinil helps. I've found it to be a mildly activating substance and I do take it along with emsam, which I'm taking now.

I'm glad to hear both of you can sleep with parnate, I really never felt alert, at any dose, starting with 60 and going up to 100 mg a day. Maybe it was too stimulating of serotonin, which I react to very badly. I finally had to give it up anyway for other reasons. For me it wasn't really the right med, and I do much better on emsam.

I had very strange dreams, or quasi-dreams on parnate, which very repeititive, and had sort of dark and limited imagery, where I was walking either uphill or over a long dark highway, or over heavy snow., I used to wake up every morning exhausted as if I had really been make a huge effort while I was asleep. It made me wonder if my muscles weren't entirely paralyzed. The other strange thing was that they seemed much more prolonged than normal dreams, and seemed to go for long periods of time, Toward the end, I would wake up directly from dreaming and sometimes would feel that I was partly woken up but not entirely and would try to get myself to wake up all the way, but that it a great struggle to do so.

I haven't had any of those problems on emsam.
