> I wish a Nardil patch was available, that could be taken in small doses without food restriction. I want to try the EmSam patch but hate to stop everything just to try something new. How did the oral Selegiline make you feel? Did it help at all?

Hi Ted.

I don't remember Eldepryl doing anything positive or negative. Then again, I didn't go higher than 30mg.

I don't know if there would be any advantage to using a patch for delivering Nardil. I should think that the dosage necessary to treat depression would be too high to be able to eliminate the tyramine diet. I'm not sure, though.

I'm not sure the hypertensive reaction to foods is completely understood. I would treat any MAOI with respect, regardless of selectivity or reversibility.
