I'm a lucky 1 who gets spontaneous HCs on Parnate

Posted by PeterMartin on September 30, 2017, at 15:30:38

Well after starting to feel 100x better this week (going from 30mg Parnate to 40mg for 4days then 50) I experienced the same problem that stopped my trial of it on 2010: Severe BP increase after doses.

Last night was really bad (220/117) for an HR or two. Then back to the way below average that most MAOis give you (90/60). First 20mg and 10mg at 10am didn't cause a rise in bp (107/70ish). Noon took 10mg for 40mg on the day. 20min later 150/100, he later 177/107. Slowly backing down down. Hadn't eaten since 8am and no other meds today.

So frustrated. In 2010 I was also taking lithium which I thougbt could have contributed. Guess not (although lithium did cause very high bp w Marplan for me).

Other meds I take:
Lamictal 150
Nuvigil 50 to 150 (didn't take any today only 50yesterday)
Seroquel 25

I'd try Nardil again but weight gain and potential mania are big fears for me.

My insurance changes on the 1st so I think I'll go back to Marplan after another washout. See my doctor in 3wks and hopefully have a plan then. I can't afrord Marplan since my new insurance won't pay a penny towards it. Over $1000 a month.....
