> Would the sublingual selegiline also obviate the need for the MAOI diet? If so, then why do we need to wait for the patch at all? Maybe it's a lot harder to get doctors to prescribe the sublingual selegiline where as if the patch were released and promoted here, then mainstream doctors would be willing to prescribe it.
I've wondered the same thing about sublingual selegiline, I know I've read that SHOULD be the case. I don't think there is a sublingual form available in the US. I imported some liquid, can't remember the measurement they use but I think it amounted to 300 mg, for about $90. Depending on your dose that could be pretty reasonable. At 10 mg a day it isn't, at least for me.
I've searched for, but never found again a post where someone claimed a really low dose, like 1-2 mg a day, would eventually give almost complete inhibition.
