> If you want to try an MAOI for attention/concentration problems, I'd suggest first going with the selegiline patch at the lowest dose. Selegiline has nootropic effects not related to MAO inhibition. The side effect profile at low doses is also fantastic. If the patch doesn't work out, you can always try tranylcypromine.

Thanks for the suggestion.


> BTW, Desoxyn is d-methamphetamine (MAP), not the racemate. The equivalent of 15mg d-amphetamine (AMP) is probably around 5mg MAP. Only a fraction is metabolized into AMP, which is 1/5th the potency of l-amphetamine with regard to peripheral stimulation. Thus, I think you are worrying a bit too much. :)

I hope so. I'm also glad to hear Desoxyn is d-meth and not the racemate. Would I be correct in inferring that 5 mg Desoxyn would have less peripheral activation than 15 mg d-AMP?

Also, in terms of peripheral stimulation might you have an idea of how say 5 mg Desoxyn compares to 30 mg pseudoephedrine?

Cheers,

Mike
