Thanks for the info. Good luck on your Parnate journey! Might I ask how much of a dose you are taking and how long you've been on it?

The evidence (and conventional opinion among psychiatrists) seems to back that up. I wouldn't get disheartened--maybe you just haven't had enough weeks on it to get that full AD effect, yet.

Since that's the presumed mechanism behind the AD effect, it seems the best dosing strategy--assuming you don't get insomnia. It's one of the best! Don't lose hope after just a couple of weeks! But as for me, I say don't sell parnate's stimulant effect short--no doubt here that it's helping me.
