> Wow, i don't ever remember seeing that third abstract you (elleff) posted before. i didn't know you could actually get phenylethylamine in exogenous oral form. i knew that much phenylalanine will be converted to PEA if taken with selegeline, but we are able to get PEA by itself?? Or, at least, it exists anyway, since the researchers in that study used it. So why isn't it sold anywhere?! Would i be able to get it if i wanted??
> i mean, seriously, how promising does that abstract make PEA sound? Can anybody answer some of the above questions?

> i hAVe read that one abstract before, showing the incredibly positive results of using selegeline and phenylalanine for depression. How amazing is that?!! What was it-- 80% responded? That's crAzy. i had mostly forgot about that study. But yeah-- why the heck does/did that study not have more impact than it does/did? Why aren't we using that combination more often??

I think the reason phenylethylamine is not commercially available, through pharmaceutical sources at least, is that it is readily convertible into amphetamine. There is, after all, only one methyl group between them: dexamphetamine is, of course "dextro-alpha-methyl-phenylethylamine".

I suspect that the reason this protocol has languished is the above, plus the absence of significant commercial drivers of selegilene.
