Parnate and orthostatic hypotension

Posted by chrismeurer on November 23, 2017, at 12:08:12


For those who take or have taken parnate, did you experience orthostatic hypotension? As you may know, dr. ken gillman sees the presence of orthostatic hypotension as a sign of minimum therapeutic dose.
I have been trying to monitor my blood pressure following his advice, but there's a few problems. I probably already had OH before starting parnate; and I take propranolol to avoid lithium side effects. One thing is for sure though, my blood pressure is a lot lower since I started parnate.
Right now, i'm taking 30 mg/day of parnate (for 6 days) and, since I clearly have hypotension and OH, was planing to keep this dose for a few weeks to access effectiveness. I'll also stop taking propranolol fow a few days and see what happens (for some reason it makes me worry of the possibility of increased anxiety, even though I don't think propranolol makes much difference.)
Well, of course I know I don't lose much waiting a few weeks to see if it helps, but the idea of being able to tell if the drug will help only because it causes a side effect is so appealing.
What do you think of it? Any thoughts are welcome :)
