It is a sort of dopamine system stabilizer. At low dosages (up to 5 mg/day), it helps with unipolar depression when used as an augmenter of standard antidepressants. It helps my bipolar depression at 15 mg/day when combined with the other drugs I'm taking. The improvement has remained consistent over the course years. Of possible importance, Abilify is a potent 5-HT1a partial agonist - as is buspirone.

By the way, MAO-A inhibition is more important when treating depression than is MAO-B inhibition. Selegiline works only when a dosage is reached that inhibits MAO-A. This is stated clearly in the manufacture's label monograph.

I hope you find what you are looking for. I haven't. For me, Parnate seems to be a dead-end. It helps in that I receive a partial increase in mental energy and concentration. It doesn't help much for anhedonia and mental clarity. However, I am grateful for being able to read more than two or three sentences at a time and have the words make sense.

Because my psychiatric treatment regime was interrupted for the time I was in the hospital, it makes sense for me to give Parnate more time. Just prior to my hospitalization, I reduced my dosage of prazosin from 30 mg/day to 15 mg/day. I began to feel better for having done this. Again, though, I remain in an anhedonic brain-fog with little interest or motivation in doing anything.
