Selegiline review by 47 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Moderately Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   attention deficit problems, concentration difficul
Dosage & duration:   10 mg taken daily for the period of since March 2007
Other conditions:   frontal lobe atrophy
Other drugs taken:   melatonin
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   During the first two weeks no notable benefits, but after that there was a distinct difference; the brain fog seemed to have disappeared, general mental state and motivation improved. However, there was no significant change as to the ability to concentrate which continued to be as poor as before. On doctor's advice the dosage was increased to 20mg per day but due to side-effects on that dose had to return to the previous dose (10mg daily)
Side effects:   On the larger dosage of 20mg per day: dizziness, rapid heart rate, general feeling of nausea
Comments:   See as stated above. Since this drug didn't really work on add-symptoms as efficiently as was expected the patient will ask her neurologist for a prescription of either Ritalin or Concerta or something similar especially for improving concentration.
