> By using a patch you bypass first pass metabolism (the liver)... no metabolites means no nasty side effects because the metabolites are some amphetamines which very often cause anxiety and insomnia....


Bypassing First pass is a good thing indeed. But if SELEGILINE isn't worth much, what you got in the end is a 'poor antidepressant with less side-effects' and no MAOI diet ONLY on low dose. This would make the SELEGILINE patch an AD one step under Moclobemide.


That said I think the coming of EMSAM is a very good thing overall. Even with all I said I'm very excited by this medical advance and I'm looking forward to see many people on this forum telling us it is a godbless for them.

Whatever I may think about EMSAM I wish I'll be prooved wrong in place and time.
