Deprenyl did absolutely nothing for me. Dosed at 2mg per day for one month. Took a few weeks off, went back on at 10mg per day for two weeks. That gave me headaches. No positives.
MAOI's like selegeline are not used anymore except in cases such as Parkinsons and the adverse effects, potential for toxicity (especially with children around), and drug/food interactions are through the roof and can worsen your problem by giving you fluctuating neurotransmitter levels.

Hey there, well this was years ago.... a very old post
I had low test and thus low dopamine. I'm on TRT now and I don't take any anti-depressants or dopaminergenics except for occasional 5mg tab of deprenyl maybe twice per week, and some P5P.
Btw Mao-b inhibitors don't have food restrictions like Mao-a inhibitor's have. Mao-b only effects DOPA and NOR/EPI unless taking extremely high doses, then there is some spill over to A.
Deprenyl is EXTREMELY safe and is actually neuro-protective, thus it's popularity amongst the anti-aging crowd.
SSRI's are a nightmare and can permanently lower dopamine in some patients. They are ugly, and I would never suggest them to people. SSRA's are the future, and I would highly recommend SAM-e or an SSRA over old school and horrible, ED inducing, personality blunting SSRI's
I love low dose deprenyl ( 2,5mg ED) with a natural source of L-dopa ( mucuna pruriens)
