I can sympathize with your cause as I have been battling the "beast" for quite some time now. I did try selegiline for a short time (6months) and recieved a little relief but not as much as I had on effexor. I'm with you on that I also believe that anhedonia is tied in with DA. More specifically the D2 and D3 receptors.

I've read some initial reports saying the new DA agonist mirapex used for parkinsons disease has shown some potential antidepressant actions. Also L-phenylalanine taken concurrently with selegiline might be another option. I just ordered some reboxetine from overseas I hope to give it a trial soon. As for now I am currently taking 225mg of effexor xr. I've read that effexor inhibits the reuptake of DA and NE only in the higher doses so I am adjusting my dose as I tolerate the side effects. I know this is'nt much but I hope it gets the mind turning!
