Customer Question
I started taking Parnate...

I started taking Parnate today...20 mg...but drank a lot of red wine tonight, not realizing it was on the list of things not to eat/drink. What should I do now? I have clonidine. Should I take that to counteract the effects of Parnate?

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I've been depressed for years and was on prozac for 20 years Went off prozac five weeks ago to start the MAOI but I am also an alcoholic

Parnate and alcohol can cause increased blood pressure, however it is only if you do this chronically that you will have clinical issues over time. You will be fine just avoid alcohol in the future. Hopefully this fully answers your question. Once satisfied please rate my answer. Thanks.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
