Re: Deprenyl Contraceptive interaction? :( missliz

The study I saw about interaction is here:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=10215747&dopt=Abstract

Selegiline doesn't make the contraceptives less effective, instead the contraceptives make the selegiline up to 20x more effective. This is a problem because if the selegiline dose is too high, you have to be careful with dietary restrictions (like other MAO-A inhibitors). My man's very caring and he'd wear condoms if I asked - but I understand what you meant there, I've gone out with some real jerks before.

I realized that when I started taking the pill again was about the same time I became very depressed again. I'm going to talk to my doctor about non-hormonal methods.

Thank you for your reply and your concern. I really do need to get myself to therapy. I was going to call today but I slept too late to make an appointment (I work graveyard shift). The idea of getting an unsympathetic therapist terrifies me, but my thoughts are terrifying me more. I was afraid to go to sleep today because I thought that I would kill myself in my sleep. I know that's irrational, so were the thoughts that caused me to OD. I will try to make it in tomorrow. Thanks again.
