    At the age of 74, I have tried all the other drugs and none worked. My psychiatrist then put me on Parnate taking 4 10mgs a day. Yes, there are some reactions and yes, the food laws are complicated and sometimes difficult. But the drug has been a miracle drug. It has helped me immensely. For me, it is an "end of the road" drug. It is the only one that has worked. A major side effe ... Show Full Comment

    Horrible drug. This is just like speed but you have to be on this ridiculous diet that made it almost impossible to eat out. My mind was racing; I was talking rapidly, my body felt weird, no coordination, dizzy, hard time walking, passed out if I stood up too quick, high blood pressure when lying down and more. I feel like I have never recovered from this drug after being off it for ahwile. This w ... Show Full Comment

    I've had moderate to severe depression since my early 20's. The SSRI's were not very effective - lots of side effects that made life unenjoyable- though I know they are very effective for others. This turned out to be a "miracle" drug. I took it at the height of one of my depressions and one or two days later felt significantly better. At small dosages I did not feel any side ...
