> I am curious to know if Emsam has any subjectively similar effects to clorgyline (a structurally related MAO-A inhibitor).
In 2000, Dennis Murphy, MD at the NIH recommended I try selegiline based upon my positive response to clorgyline. I understood the chemical relationship, but wasn't sure of his rationale given the differences in selectivity. I guess we'll have to see. I don't know what my doctor has in mind regarding the rate of titration of Emsam.
