I've stopped taking Parnate (MAOI) for 2 weeks now (after being on it for 22 years). I did not want to have to worry about the potentially serious interactions with certain meds and foods. Now I am extremely anxious and depressed and realize that I do need to take something. I was originally prescribed this for my eating disorder . Has anyone been on Parnate and switched?
Hello ineset. I was on parnate and in as much as it didn't give me relief. What followed in my case was ECT. That worked short term, lots of sessions, but little to show for them. What followed is a list of various snri, ssri drugs and a few of the now what I might call oldies. Long tale short, the past years the main players for for me have been Seroquel and Remeron. Doesn't cure all, but a major side effect is it makes one sleepy, and I am an insomniac so I try and nail two problems with one pill. You'll be hard pressed to replace the MAOI. They are the cream of the crop, but I know about the side effects and diet, thats the trade off. Best of wishes,pledge
