Post of the Week: Impulse Control Disorders Can be Induced by Rasagiline and Other MAO-B's

Recommended Posts

Dear forum members,


It has been previously reported that impulse control disorders (binge eating, shopping, gambling, hypersexuality, etc.) can be induced by Selegiline; this recent report suggests rasagiline (in the same class of drugs) can also push people toward ICD. Though rare practitioners and patients should be aware.
