> Nardil feels very much different than Parnate. In my experience, it is more of a mood brightener and can be pro-social. However, mania or hypomania may be a greater risk with Nardil, especially early in treatment. You might need to establish some type of anti-manic coverage, hopefully one that doesn't aggravate depression. Depakote can be a great anti-manic drug, but sometimes leaves one mildly to moderately depressed. Abilify can be a good choice to prevent mania, too. It can also produce some remarkable antidepressant effects when combined with an antidepressant. I know someone who actually did well combining Abilify with Lamictal. I take both drugs in addition to Parnate.

I have an idea I might be BPII as well. Asked my doc last time. He simply replied "maybe, but I'm more concerned with what works for YOU rather than that diagnosis." Fair enough, but I want the diagnosis. It can help me with certain life situations (esp housing). Also should I more than likely need to see a new doc in the future they will most likely treat BPII 'their way'

80% of add-ons often do appear to work initially or within a couple of weeks but they mostly poop out quick-time.

I'm doing surprisingly well on 5mg Abilify right now and for the previous month. Still good day bad day tho. I may well benefit from a mood stabilizer like lamotrigine but I would be interested in adding lithium back in (from 3yrs ago). I've taken lithium on Marplan but never on Nardil.

Its hard making decision when on an MAOI. There are many combinations, but where I would need an MAOI washout before hand. Thats a big step. Last time I did it myself. In future I will ask for a hospital bed. Its hard, I can never take my emotions along to the docs. Usually I've been waiting so long I'm happy the day I see my pdoc or even GP. I think my doc knows this. See him again this coming Thursday.
Hate the way they send you back him just coz u dont say ur suicidal. But saying so you are handing over your rights so it seems.
