    I've been on Parnate for such a long time I guess its in my intermost parts of my brain. I tried to quit it and get on Paxil but, the side effects of paxil on me was just too much to take and I did a slow taper off of parnate too. It does'nt work too good on me, but it still does help some.

    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. However, I have just come off parnate as it is just not ... Show Full Comment
