Exactly what I feared has happened. After trying many different (types of) drugs over the years, I was put onto parnate. I really expected it to work, as it was the last-resort. I have had ECT and even that didn't work. I didn't mind the diet etc, even though I did have to go to ER once with one of those famous parnate headaches.
