Hi Chris. Thanks for all the info!

Can I ask exactly how you took the SL Buprenex? Did you just open the ampule and squirt it under your tongue? Or what? Dr. Bodkin suggested I try using it intranasally as an alternative.

I don't have rapid-cycling moods (just ordinary unipolar melancholic depression that isn't entirely controlled by Parnate) but I do have panic disorder, if this makes a difference. I had my first panic attack in a few weeks the night before last. :-( As far as the depression goes, mostly what I am experiencing right now is low energy, apathy, lack of interest/enjoyment, etc.

How was selegiline for you, BTW? I tried up to 40mg/day but I just had nausea, insomnia, and increased anxiety. It didn't "feel" like the other MAOIs.
