hey! I personally wouldn't do augmentation with selegiline at this point, but its really between you and your doc. Personally, I found that Tofranil-PM helped, although I had some weight gain...Cymbalta seems to help just as much, without as many weird side effects. Pamelor, I believe, is the **official** tricyclic for the ADHD crowd. Aside from that...I'd seriously consider Effexor, Cymbalta, Wellbutrin, Provigil; after that, raising the adderall dose a bit or going on a brief amphetamine-free time may help. After that a tricyclic (the amphetamines and tricyclics play with each other weird, so you end up with enhanced effects--good and bad--of each when you take them together.) Then...then I'd ask about doing selegiline-augmentation, or something similar. I believe you said in an earlier post that you have anxiety that is made worse by Adderall and other "true" stimulants...have you tried the benzo+adderall mix? More and more people I know are being RX'd both, to be taken at the same time, with pretty good effects. Personally, I did find increasing my klonopin when I first started Adderall, then slowly bring the klonopin back down, adding buspar, and then tapering off the klonopin, kept everything in check. I grew accustomed enough to the adderall to handle the stimulation w/o too much anxiety, and the careful buspar/klonopin dose adjustments meant I always had a working anti-anxiety agent to work with (buspar doesn't work so well for a lot people though, and a good number of people who get benefits have to drop it from side-effects. Benzos are more of a sure-shot thing). Cymbalta and Tofranil, like I said, worked well with adderall; however, when I added cymbalta (full-dose) to the Tofranil and adderall (all kept at their original doses) I got terrible side effects...turns out my doc didn't factor in the cymbalta raising the Tofranil blood levels way above the normal range. ANYWAY, sorry to make this so long...what you do with your body and your meds is really between you and a competent physician; I'm just saying that I'd personally opt for other augmentation strategies first. Good luck!
