Sounds like I opened a can of worms here It was just a statement based on what others seem to be experiencing & may not be correct but it appears theat some of the people are seeming to have a problem with emsam & extreme agitation. I myself sense an increase in energy + slight agitation which I'm actually taking advantage of to motivate myself to get into better shape.

Even though selegiline is a MAO type B inhibitor it also blocks the reuptake of Dopamine similar to Wellbutrin. It is this that may be causing the agitation. MAO type B main substance that it breaks down is phenylethylemine which is a chatecholamine activity enhancer which tends to boost ones energy. this is the same chemical found in chocolate & is referred to as the chocolate amphetamine & it is probably this plus the reuptake blocking of dopamine that is responsible for its antidepressant action. unfortunately it does not work for everyone but yes it does help some with social anxiety as I know from personal experience so my statement on the anxiety issue may be wrong & there is probably some other cause to the extreme agitation such as possibly the increase of dopamine in the brain for example. Again for some people like me who are very very anergic without selegiline it may work really well as it does for me.
