Well, Emsam is apparently just a patch version of selegiline, so while it may avoid the dietary problems of oral selegiline, I would think it would not have any more efficacy than oral selegiline - and from the reading I've done on this board tonight (from searching for keywords selegiline and social) it seems selegilene is not great for social anxiety - I assumed it would be, since like Nardil it is an MAOI, but apparently they are quite different somehow. Maybe Nardil exhances GABA and selegiline does not.

So far I have not read anything really encouraging that would make me want to go from lexapro to selegiline/Emsam for my depression. It appears selegiline causes anxiety in people with social anxiety, like Wellbutrin does.
