> OK, I just read on another message board that selegeline metabolizes to amphetamine. Is that true???? If it is true, wouldn't you develope a tolerance for it and need more. Or wouldn't you "burn out" on it? Any assistance with this question would be appreciated.
> Also, at the lowest patch dose, are you getting an affect on MAO-A at all, or is it all MAO-B?

As for the first part of your question I don't have the answer, just know that I don't do well at all with any amphetamine drugs, they give me more of what I don't want, anxiety. My doc didn't want me taking oral selegiline, I asked, he said the side effects would probably be more than I could stand at high enough doses to be theraputic (to get both MAOI-A and B) and even then it wouldn't work like the patch. Perhaps others can shed more light light on this.

As for the second part it's my understanding that at the 20mg patch dose both MAOI-A and MAOI-B are affected. Again, perhaps others can shed more light on it. So far (which is to soon to judge) no anxiety as a side effect. Rob
