Hi, Judy. I don't have depression, but I took Selegiline (Deprenyl) in the hopes that it would treat my social phobia. I started initially at 15 mg/day, which is supposed to keep it irreversible and selective for MAO-B. This means the effect is mostly dopaminergic. I didn't get any anxiety relief at this dosage, so i spoke with the psychdoc and we titrated up to 60 mg/day, in increments of +10mg every 4 days. At 60 mg/day, i felt wonderful and very sexual. Almost too sexual. However, it did nothing for my social phobia. I'd say the effect was nothing like with either Nardil (an irreversible, non-selective, Hydrazine MAOI) or Parnate (an irreversible, non-selective, NON-hydrazine MAOI)or Marplan (an irrerversile, non-selective, Hydrazine MAOI). Hope this helps at least a little.

Good luck, Judy. JohnB
