Considering the MAO-B status of it is dose dependent, this would be very dangerous. I'm so upset.

There are two ways you can deal with this, and still try the selegilene. You can go off your birth control *temporarily* (taking other precautions if needed), and take a normal dose of selegilene after one day. Or, you can try to estimate a significantly smaller dose of selegilene (by breaking pills), and continue with the birth control. The abstract you noted suggests dose adjustment as a strategy.

>The deprenyl sounded like it would work very well in helping me with stimulant addiction and low energy. I called the doctor and they said that the earliest anyone can see me is a week and a half from now. I felt too stupid to tell the receptionist how bad I'm really doing, that a week and a half might as well be 10 years. I guess I'll try calling back and asking to see someone sooner if I can get up the nerve. I feel pathetic talking to anyone about it but considering I've been doing some things lately bordering on suicidal I think I need to see someone NOW.

I strongly suggest you do something about your mental state right now. Call a crisis line. Go to emergency. Call your counsellor. You need someone to hear about your struggle. Please, take some action now.

Or, just talk to us. We care.
