> 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.

> 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.

At least with Nardil orthostatic hypotension began AFTER the benefits presented themselves.
I will be finding out about Parnate soon perhaps.
Marplan also causes it. Why all 3 irreversible MAOIs? I best read the above.
One way around it is to increase salt (sodium) intake


Phenelzine 120mg, Amitriptyline 100mg, Clonazepam 3mg, Bupropion 450mg, Aripiprazole 10mg, Acamprosate 2g + nootropics
