Here is the study. It was by Birkmayer. I don't know about Sabelli studies - can you post them?
Anyways, Birkmayer study shows TERRIFIC RESULTS. I'm wondering whether ANYTHING that increases dopamine (be it phenylalanine, GHB, L-Tyrosine, L-Dopa, Carvodopa) could work with Selegiline?

L-deprenyl plus L-phenylalanine in the treatment of depression

Birkmayer, W

J Neural Transmission. (AUSTRIA), 1984, 59/1 (81-87)


The antidepressive efficacy of deprenyl (5-10 mg daily) plus L-phenylalanine (205 mg/day) has been evaluated in 155 unipolar depressed patients. Both oral and intravenous administration showed beneficial effects in 90% of outpatients and 80.5% of inpatients. It is concluded that this combined treatment has a potent antidepressive action based on the accumulation of L-phenylethylamine in the brain.
