Hi Courtney,

Could it be that you are experiencing some sort of hypertension?
I'm trying to get adjusted to Eldepryl (Selegine) and am going through the same motions as you are. Eventhough I'm on a very low dose (1.25 mg every 2 days - taken sublingually).
From what I've read, it takes a few days for the body to adjust. Maybe you can lower the dose in the meantime?

Love,
Maria
