Talked to my Psychiatrist and he is really hesitant to go above 40mg (which I think is max recommended dose in UK as opposed to 60 in US)
Yeah, an the max is 30 in Australia. Get the impression MD are simply pulling random numbers out of their a** (the same place their head is located).
I was on a prescribed dose of 120 mg which worked in Milwaukee County Wisconsin & I tried up to 200 mg with no ill effect.
Based on personal experience and a study I read of such high dosages, I see the sky as the limit for Parnate dose. His patient should ask him "What size of buckshot do you recommend when I blow my brains out due to your failure to treat me, doctor? I'm leaning toward a 3" Magnum shell of 00 buck."
Guess that doesn't work in the UK, while buckshot is sold on the shelf at local stores no different than if it were a loaf of bread.
While I'm being sarcastic, I am pointing to an issue that absolutely disgusts me. MAOIs -- some of the most effective antidepressants on earth are denied to patients. This patients remain depressed and there are a million suicides worldwide each year.
A million suicides and big pharma can pretend their drugs work? Seriously? Do you think folks eat a gun because your "wonder drug" works?
Big pharma doesn't just kill by making pill that do not work, but rather they play an active role in suicide by telling MD hysterical exaggerations about MAOIs. OMG! Eating any cheese in any amount equals certain death! There is more than a little exaggeration in that.
I've pigged out on extra sharp cheddar, topping out at 8 ounces in one sitting (stopping at half a pound because that's the package size). Isn't it amazing that I'm alive?
