Having a medic alert bracelet sounds like a cheap good thing to do. You never know what could happen in an emergency situation and/or will the resident intern at your local hospital know what EMSAM is?

I think you are right about Selegiline having a sort half-life. However, I don't think the half-life is relevant with an MAOI. Selegiline is an irreversible MAOI, so once you have destroyed your MAO with Emsam, it will take 2 wks after you discontinue the Emsam for you body to remanufacture some normal functioning MAOI. So if Emsam is working for someone, it might be a scary proposition to have to go off of it just to have some minor surgery, or a tooth filling. Will it work again when you restart it, or is it like the other AD's that sometimes doesn’t work again like they had done before stopping them?

> I am going to get a medic alert bracelet if emsam pans out as a long term med. I know with nardil its 10 days off it before hospital surgery or anesthesia at a dentist. Isnt selegiline a very short half life so wouldnt the time off of it be much shorter to, anyone out there with any ideas on this??
