Hi SLS. Only took Parnate once w/o much effect. Best MAO for me was Marplan before the reformulation in the mid 90s. I never got back to that level of stability ever again.
Only take Nardil now. I usually stick with one before it completely fails but maybe Parnate would work better.
What in your opinion does Parnate do that Nardil doesnt?

My recommendation for ECT is if you had it and it worked by all means try it again. My memory loss was pretty substantial and all I heard prior was that it would be STM and transient. Not true for me. Also looking back if memory was such a critical concern why was no memory testing done prior to the treatment and afterwards. If it were a concern any reputable doc would do a baseline assessment and 6 mos followup.
I ultimately, at my own request, had 2 neuro/psych assessments done but that really should be the standard of care. Like I said the doc doing it at a prestigious(?) medical center in CT denies long term memory impairment but wouldnt memory testing, pre and post ECT, be the only way to determine that? If they really cared.
