I eat a vegetarian diet, no sugar and small meals, yet I have gained about 15 lbs since starting Selegiline about 1 1/2 years ago.
I come here with the same question.
I'm 35, a long term selegiline user (14 years, 10 mg/day).
About 5 weeks ago I stoped taking selegiline to verify if the drug is a cause of my tremor (manifests as extremeties or whole body "vibration"). After few weeks I see that this was selegiline indeed. So be aware of this nasty side effect.
To my surprise I'm also loosing weight (I haven't used scales, just judging by the tightness of my pants).
In retrospect, use of selegiline was temporal (concur) with my significant weight gain (added 15 kg in 6 months back in 2001).
This is just a hypothesis. There are other factors, which may contribute to the weight-loss. F.i., we have a very hot weather during last few weeks.
I continue to abstain from selegiline to verify the possible link.
