What's plumping me up? AD advice sought.

Posted by Emme on June 21, 2003, at 7:48:39

Hi All,

Has anyone tried selegiline and found that it caused weight gain? I'm eating less, exercising more, and starting to gain weight. Here's my mix.

Lamictal 125 mg
selegiline 10 mg (with L-phenylalanine to boost it)
atenolol 25 mg
seroquel roughly 3-6 mg (yes that little)
Provigil no more than 12.5 mg (yes that little)and not every day necessarily.
clonazepam as needed, usually around 0.5-0.75 mg

In the last week I've cut out 2 mg abilify and 75 mg Li.

I'm hoping I can continue to "cull the herd" once I'm stabilized. I've been on Lamitcal, atenolol, and clonazepam for quite a while. I've taken seroquel on and off before, and have taken provigil now and then.

Selegiline (and the L-phenylalanine)is the new one, so it really seems like the obvious culprit. But I don't see weight gain listed anywhere as a side effectof selegiline. The stuff metabolizes to amphetamine, so you'd think it would do the opposite. I recently started taking seroquel again a little more regularly, so maybe that's calming me down and I'm not burning as much nervous energy....

Anybody have input? Thanks.
