Parnate has helped reduce my depression to nearly gone but I'm having tremendous difficulty with anxiety and especially social anxiety, concentration and focus. I need to go back on Concerta but I know I can't until I'm off of parnate and all MAOIs. I have failed many trials of different SSRIs, atypicals, etc. Doctor doesn't want me to stop parnate without a good alternative ready. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Especially that a CNS stimulant would actually have a calming effect on anxiety! Diagnosed with Rapid Cycling Bipolar II.
