What is Keppra? Are you in the US? Haven't heard of it here. Selegilene is mainly a dopamine enhancer, very little if any serotonin/NE affect and not generally used for antidepressant qualities. Deciding between it and Remeron is like apples and oranges so I wonder what his thoughts are. Very interesting combination. Have you ever been on lithium? It's been a life saver for me, even with the annoying side effects.

I was on Remeron up to 90mg and it started out great and then pooped in a big way. Nortriptyline has turned out to be the best AD I've been on which shocked the heck out of me, having been on all the newer esoteric stuff.

> I'm bipolar II. I take 300mg Lamictal and 1500mg Keppra. My irritability and racing thoughts have basically subsided, and these meds have had a mild/significant antidepressant effect (but not enough for me). My doc was deciding between Remeron and Selegilene--he decided Selegilene. I am starting with 2.5mg every other day, which is a very small dose...I'm to see him in two weeks.
