I suppose I'm more thinking about myself. I may have tried reducing the dose, and then perhaps increasing it again a little later.

My doctor got scared (perhaps rightly so) and yanked me off it. However, I remember ramping up to 40mg fairly quickly.

I'm not sure if one can develop a resistance to that particular side effect or not.

However, there is a degree of severity regarding very high blood pressure, so this is a risk that you may or may not be comfortable with.

Parnate is not a pure MAOI, I believe it has an amphetamine like metabolite. It also has been known to have some effect on monoamine reuptake.

So, I don't know if the degree of MAO inhibition is a strict guideline for all MAOIs.

You might send a quick email to this guy (Dr. Ken Gillman) about your experiences. He prescribes parnate quite frequently for TRD and devotes a large portion of its site to different research regarding Parnate.
