Getting to sleep was tough last night. I found myself irritable (cats were too close to me, the dialogue from the tv was stupid and made me angry). I had to take 75 mgs trazodone instead of 50 mg. I remember this from before on parnate and don't remember if it happened when I was increasing or decreasing the dose.

Woke up 2 hours into sleep soaked in sweat. Also had a headache for last several hours of the day.

Today I found focusing kind of difficult, and sort of like I couldn't grab onto my own sense of self, and I couldn't access my sense of humor.

when I took my first 10mgs of marplan, my voice got very tight and strained, which is normally how I feel after I stop an antidepressant. Also, I got the first hint of "eye swooshies" which I tend to get in lieu of "brain zaps" when I stop a serotonergic drug. Felt a little more impatient and full of confrontational ruminations.

I didn't think I wanted to do this but I took 5mgs parnate and it helped with mood, humor, and focus. I finished the day with another 10 mgs marplan.

I chatted quick with Dr. Gilman and he couldn't conceive a problem with my direct swap but didn't get a clear sense of any danger from using a small dose of parnate for stim effect/withdrawls given my low ending dose of parnate and low start up of marplan. I couldn't get a clear sense in web search or using his monogram either.

Part of me already misses the calm brain and focus from full parnate which will probably fade but there's a lack of social avoidance and lack of compulsive behavior that I'm seeing already and that alone might be worth the switch.

If anyone can elucidate a danger in the dovetailing that I'm describing please let me know.
