Maybe a little nervousness. (If anxiety is a major component of your depression, I'd strongly advise you to stay away from Deprenyl, aka selgiline/Eldepryl/Jumex, unless maybe you're taking a benzo at the same time.)

You probably already know this, but if you reach a dose of 15 mg or higher, Deprenyl starts becoming a non-selective MAOI like Nardil, so that all the critcal food and drug interactions must be heeded to avoid the chance of hypertensive crisis.

It may increase your libido some.

In any event, other than possible nervousness and the need to watch what you eat at higher doses, it sure won't have all the side effects that Nardil can cause! I've been there! But Nardil *has* been a godsend for many, and some people develop tolerance to most of the side effects.
