I have tried selegiline (Deprenyl) and phenylalanine separately, but not together. The phenylalanine produced some decent effects for about a week when I took it last, but ultimately seemed to lose its effectiveness. When I took selegiline, I noticed a decent antidepressant effect for about three days, followed by agitation and cognitive impairment. Selegiline and phenylalanine together might produce some synergy, but it's the agitation and the cognitive impairment from the selegiline that have kept me away from taking it again (with or without something else).
I think it's good that you seem to be doing well for the time being with all of the medications, supplements, and nootropics that you're taking, and I too hope that you get lasting benefits from your combo. I also think it's really good that you've been able to quit benzos, street speed, and weed, and I wish you continued success in keeping away from those drugs.
Of the nootropics and supplements that you're taking, Sulbutiamine is the only one that I haven't tried. I think it looks interesting and may give try it at some point.
Well, thank you again for all of your suggestions. As I see it, the more options that I have for the management of my anergic/vegetative depression, the better. And again, I hope that you keep getting good results from your combo of medications, supplements, and nootropics.
