In reply to any experience with selegeline in pill form?, posted by n_shrimpie on April 3, 2012, at 18:08:35
I tried oral selegiline back in 2006 for what at the time was a severe vegetative depression, and I found that it produced a fairly strong antidepressant effect that faded after about three days on the medication. Once the antidepressant benefits of the selegiline faded, I started to feel more agitated and cognitively impaired than usual. I had basically the same response to Marplan (isocarboxazid) and the version of Parnate (tranylcypromine) manufactured by Goldshield for the U.K., although I didn't experience any significant agitation or cognitive impairment on those medications after they stopped producing antidepressant benefits.
I think I remember taking 5 or 10 mg of oral selegiline when I tried it.
