I'm really sorry to hear that, Judy. Is there no hope for Nardil? Just out of curiousity, what are the possible "players" to be used in conjunction with Parnate to take the edge off? When you find out what your doctor has up his sleeve, I'd like very much to hear about it.


P.S. I don't know if estrogen alone would be as much of a problem with selegiline as oral contraceptives (estrogen+progesterone, I assume). I can't figure out why the investigators didn't try to tease out this issue, since it would be very easy to do and could only add immensely to the value of the paper for minimal effort. If only one or the other "sex hormone" was the culprit, that would be important information. I'm also curious about other exogenous steroids: What about testosterone, or, say, finasteride? The latter is quite often prescribed for benign prostate hyperplasia, a common affliction of older men. Since Parkinson's and Alzheimer's also strike the elderly most often (and I'm not forgetting estrogen treatment for post-menopausal women), it seems reasonable to check for possible interactions, given this paper. Hopefully there will be followup studies.
