> So I just came back from my psychiatrist and I will be starting Remeron in a few weeks. It was between that and Lexapro. He seemed to think that Selegiline doesn't help many people and so is hesitant about having me go on the Selegiline patch. I think I will have to do some research about that though. Hmmm... I'm glad that your sister has found something that works for her and she must be very excited about the patch!

Keep in mind you still have to worry about Tyramine but I think it is less. Talk with your doctor about it, she has really been helped by it.

I find it odd your doc would say deprenyl doesent help many when......A there are two forms of deprenyl,tabs and liquid.

The tabs are totaly not anti deprssants,and although im sure they can be prescribed OFF LABEL
this is something that from my view is extremly extremly rare,.....reason being a docter is reluctant to use Maois period,so i cant imagine why a docter who takes the less known road and chooses to use a Moai with his patients will not use the MAIN two,and instead go with a very rarly used maoi in the pysch world.....deprenyl?
I mean its rare enough a doc would choose to use maois,.......but to go a step further and use one that has almost no documented history in depression.The throwing the last brick on the heap tell you "most people dont have success on it" which would have to indicate either he or someone has seen this strange deprenyl treatment done often,i dont buy that very much,just something there doesent sound right,had he simply said most people dont do well on MOAIS would have made sense,but of course would have been inaccurate as maoi users do no worse than ssri users.

As far as deprenyl liquid,well its not a drug here in the U.S so we wont even go thought,ur doc blew u off on the deprenyl discussion,i personaly believe and again this whole post is just my own belief is that when a doc doesent know enough as he/she wants to on a subject,they seem to like to discredit it and move on and away.

Big bucks,lots of work and time are invested in the deprenyl patch,its not even out yet,so i logicaly cant see how a docter can come to the conclusion of saying most people dont do well on deprenyl,lets get it on the market first maybe?

Oh i see manhattan,manhattenite are you? Man i miss shopping on 34th st.
