About your other question about tests, Dr. Stahl writes this: (from

How come you think raising the dose would help with the GAD and OCD? What mechanisms in a higher dose do you think help with GAD and OCD?

I feel like a larger dose probably would work better for me, it's just I get bad insomnia at 50-60mg, which makes it counterproductive and ineffective. If I could treat the insomnia, then I could actually give the Parnate more of a chance to work at a higher dose.
