Re: Selegiline, Estrogen, etc.

Adam - I appreciate your definitely salient points. Interesting, and scary, about Selegiline and oral contraceptives. Just out of curiosity, the article mentioned several times "female sex/oral steroids" - would the reaction be the same to pure Estrogen do you think?

Anyway, your salient points are unfortunately moot points. I finally talked to my doctor and he felt my response to Selegiline wasn't great enough to warrant trying augmentation of any kind. (He agreed with you and your doctor about Melatonin being a bad idea BTW). Thus I begin the weaning and washout periods and end up back at Square One. I'm devastated - I had such high hopes for Selegiline. I've never had any kind of positive response to an AD with so few side effects before. And I will miss the orgasmic experience (trust me on this!).

My remaining options seem to be Remeron (which I can't decline more passionately because of the sedation); or a revisitation of Parnate combined with something (a player to be named later, I guess) combined to take the edge off. I'll find out what comes next when I'm "clean" of Selegiline.

Thanks for all your help (Everyone else too!)
