You slipped in Judy,
When I have the energy, perhaps we could discuss your experiences w/selegiline in another thread.
I'm dreadfully sorry to hear that it, I'm guessing, pooped out on you. Frankly, it also scares me. But I want to know more. I just can't deal right now.
Thanks for the medicine advice, too. I will send for some of that Robitussen (thank the great whatever I have someone willing to do this for me right now). My sides actually hurt from coughing. I can't seem to bring up whatever's down there, though, so what's the point?
Be well, Judy. Like I said, I'm very sorry to hear about your med. trouble. It makes me realize I have very little to complain about (though it hasn't stopped me yet.)

> Not funny - it's happening to a lot of people - the flu shot you got in October didn't immunize
you against the flu bug that's knocking everyone on their butts right now - they didn't see this one coming, I guess.
> I know how you feel...like you're never going to have energy again. But you will.
> My two cents on otc meds. Eliz's suggestion of Phernagen is a good one, but if you can't drag yourself to your PCP for a script, plain old Robitussen (not the DM kind - no dextromethorphan with MAOI's)can be used with a MAOI - active incredient is Guaifenesin). They make cough drops too. Having been on MAOI's so many times, I keep an industrial size bottle of it on hand at all times. Seems to work well with Selegiline - I found I slept better when I took it for a cold a week or so ago. Can't remember if you said you were taking Ibuprofen, but that seemed to work well for me for the aches and pains.
> Sorry for the disjointed thoughts. I'm supposed to be weaning off Selegiline and haven't had the courage to do it yet even though I seem to have lost most of the benefits it was providing. I had just refilled my perscription when I got the dictum to stop taking it so I have some 'stall time'. Just can't bear another trial and error yet.
> Feel better. Judy
