Has anyone noticed an increase on his blood pressure while he/she is on Selegiline?
I do, although i'm not 100% sure that Selegiline is responsible for this, but it is the prime suspect. I only take a micro dose of Sulpiride with it, currently.
I take 10-15mg orally. Although, dietary restriction is not nessecary at this dosage, i do avoid tyramine-rich foods, so the rise in my BP is not tyramine related.
So.. I basically want to ask 2 things:
a)Has anyone else experienced this?
b) what is the best medical approach to treat Seleiline-induced hypertension?
ACE inhibitors + a diuretic?
Don't suggest clonidine, please. I know that it should be effective, but it also kind-of cancels the effect of Selegiline due the sedation it causes.
