Having good results with Deprenyl/Selegiline! :)

Posted by wingedcat on February 1, 2003, at 17:44:56

I took Wellbutrin for two years with good results at first. About six months ago, the side effects (twitching, trouble sleeping) got worse while my depression came back severely. I was withdrawn and suicidal. I stopped taking Wellbutrin and started Deprenyl two weeks ago. I take 5mg a day with ~600 mg DLPA (divided doses). I am feeling a lot better, and pleasantly alert! The suicidal and guilt feelings have left. I feel more of an "I can do it" attitude. I feel sometimes transiently high but my stimulant cravings are almost gone... as opposed to a few weeks ago where all I could think about was how anxious/miserable I was and how much I wanted to take (illegal) drugs.

Best of all, I have found a psychologist who I trust enough to talk to. One I saw before didn't listen to me at all, he wanted to start me back on the Wellbutrin despite the fact that I had gotten better while off it. This new psychologist is really nice and he is okay with me taking Deprenyl.

I also had a thyroid panel done and am awaiting the results. Hypothyroidism runs in my family. In a way, I am hoping I am hypothyroid, that way I will have a "reason" for the depression, and T3 may help me improve even more. But even if that's not the case, due to the Deprenyl I feel a little better every day.

Keep trying new things, I thought just a short while ago that nothing would work for me. It's not just placebo, I've tried a few meds that either didn't work at all or made me worse.
