> > I found Nardil 90 mg/day to be more energizing than Parnate 120 mg/day. I also had more trouble sleeping with Nardil. Everyone is different, though. Are you taking any other medications? Did Parnate help you at any point?

> In fact, this is the third time I've been on Parnate. Previously, it worked very well for me. This time, I'm only aware that I'm on it when, for one reason or another, I miss a day. Then, I become "teary-eyed." I've been on virtually every other prescription antidepressant ever created in the Western World. For example, I've been on Prozac three times and it was only the first time I was on it that it worked.

Your experience with Prozac is all too common.

I see that Phidippus suggested that you consider chronic fatigue syndrome as an explanation for your lack of energy. I have two questions:

1. What are your symptoms and diagnosis?

2. What drugs have you added to Parnate?

Currently, I take:

Parnate 80 mg/day
nortriptyline 100 mg/day
Lamictal 300 mg/day
lithium 300 mg/day
Abilify 15 mg/day
prazosin 30 mg/day

I recently increased my dosage of Abilify from 10 mg/day to 15 mg/day. I am encouraged. If I had to make a change in my treatment, I would consider switching from Parnate to Effexor 300-400 mg/day and leave everything else in place.
