IrishAugust Posted October 28, 2005 Share Posted October 28, 2005 Greetings all.... DH is now taking Parnate, 20mg twice a day. It has taken three years to get his DH pdoc to finally agree that his problem wasn't plain vanilla depression. That, and he's tried nearly every medication known to man for depression and then one more (riluzole, very interesting, actually). He d/c-ed all other meds a few weeks ago, tapered off, all the right things. Started the parnate slowly. Watches his diet. Blahblahblah. Anyways, anyone got a time frame for onset of action, like, ballpark? He gets the afternoon fatigue kick in the guts, but no "hey, I feel a little better", yet. We are actaully waiting for the EMSAM patch, but of course, the pdoc wouldn't prescribe the oral selegiline. WTF. DHs dx is atypical depression, but I see some BPII (mostly anger issues) in there too. We are waiting for a second opinion appointment. Considering we live in close proximity to a ginormous teaching hospital witha great reputation, it's amazing how freakin' long these appointment take to get. So, and Parnaters here? How're you doing. Give me some hope, please...... Regards, Irish Panic/anxiety/depression<------stupidly well-controlled by Vitamin P and a little Ativan. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
