Selegiline - Does it cause postural hypotension?

Responses (1)

Hello! Yes, it can but it's relatively uncommon and reported more frequently in older adults:
"Uncommon (0.1% to 1% of users): Angina pectoris, ankle edema, orthostatic hypotension"
"The relative risk for treatment-emergent hypertension and orthostatic or postural hypotension was reported as being at least 2 fold greater in patients 65 years or older compared to those younger than 65 years. "
This side effect should be reported to your doctor.
Best regards, Wild Cat

I only ask as I experienced it with Tranylcypromine.
