The NIH's online study library has some studies in favor of the levo-amphetamine based MAOI-B called Selegeline and the combined A-B MAOI based on dextroamphetamine, tranylcyclopromine, or Parnate for ADHD. Personally, I feel that Selegeline resembles a stimulant - I take it at 11AM, it kicks in by noon, I lose most appetite for lunch. it peaks at about 2-3, leaving me feeling calm and wanting a nap, it crashes and leaves my body physically exhausted by 10PM, and if I don't go to bed by 11-12, I get racing thoughts and a fidgety feeling that keeps me up till 2-3 AM. Does anyone have experience with MAOI antidepressants and ADHD? Rasageline, Marplan, Nardil, Selegeline, or Parnate?

No one has been on an old school MAOI? Oh well.
