Thanks for the suggestions. I feel like something may have changed for the good in the past few hours. Really hoping so after 3 days of almost complete anhedonia. Took a half of a caffeine tab along w/ my afternoon Marplan (10mg / 30total today).

I have an uncommon high bp reaction when I add Lithium to an MAOi. I don't think it happens early on/immediately though. It did cross my mind earlier to take a tiny bit in a glass of water. Didn't do it though...

The whole up and down of my failed month long trial to switch to Parnate has me spooked a bit. Have new insurance next year and there is a good chance they won't cover Marplan at all so my doc and I thought it good to try a switch before the 1st.

Now I just hope I can get back to where I was early Sept when I first stopped Marplan for a wk to try Parnate (didn't work out due to high BP spikes after doses). Figure out a different plan or maybe just wait until I'm sure I'll have no choice but to change.

The REM rebound sound likey. I've had it in the past but maybe not along with such a deep drepression. It's the worst when the dreams are movielike nightmares that you don't just forget on wake. Linger for a few hours.....ugh.

I've stopped/started Marplan a few times in the past and it usually takes 10 to 14 days for early wake ups to start. That's usually when I start to feel "like myself".

Thx again for replying.
