Oh yes, I would definitely wait for the patch! I just wanted to check and see if people had had any luck with taking selegiline orally since my doc didn't seem to think it's an effective a.d.
It would be so great to be able to take and MAOI (both Nardil and Parnate were great for my depression) but not have to deal with BP issues. Although from what I understand the FDA is arguing with Emsam's people about tyramine labeling right now...

I'm not really clear why, but he indicates that it will be far superior to the oral in terms of effectiveness, not to mention fewer side effects including weight gain, decreased libido as well as less food restrictions at the 20mg dose.
