Thanks a lot Linkadge for your reply - I always appreciate your posts.

I'm so torn cause my BP is fine now. Took a nap and feel like fantastic. Exciting about the evening even though I'm just going to be sitting on the internet.

Are you aware of anyone who has actually has successful remission w/ the "maintenance dose recommendations"? I think for the MAOis they suggest going up until full MAO inhibition is reached and then to cut back the dose. That wouldn't have worked for me during my 7yrs on Marplan. I also can't recall anyone here using that drop back to a low dose method here.....but then again Parnate is not the same structure as Nardil/Marplan so maybe it would work?

I may try to go w/ 30 all before noon again (as I was when I started). The first time I noticed my BP out of range was last night after a 5pm +10mg Parnat (50) and nuvigil 1/2 (125mg total for the day).

If 30 doesn't spike my BP then perhaps I may see if my mood maintains on that dose for a wihle. Hopefully in time I'll adjust and (if needed) be able to stay at 40/50 which is where I really broke through.

Thanks again fro replying.
