Hi.

Of course, you know that I am just trying to help. I apologize for sounding too reprimanding. I am just frustrated for you, and thought that you might have been just 10 mg/day of Parnate short of greatly improving your quality of life.

I can certainly understand your being sensitive to the side effects of medications at higher dosages, and that you might obtain the best result at dosages that are generally considered to be subtherapeutic. A good friend of mine is in the same category.

I cannot predict how you would react to 40 mg/day of Parnate with certainty, and I can appreciate that you cannot take the chance of dropping out of work.

I found that Nardil was more of a "mood brightener" than Parnate, and produced an improvement in interest, motivation, and reward (a reduction of anhedonia). It is not true that Parnate is always better for mental energy than is Nardil. For me, it is quite the opposite. Unfortunately, Nardil does not produce a stable improvement for me for any length of time, so I am "stuck" with Parnate and drugs that are used in combination with it in order to produce a more persistent antidepressant effect. I miss the mood brightening, clarity of thought, and increase in reward that Nardil gives me. Right now, I have opted to remain on Parnate for a few more months and then evaluate its worth to me.
