Selegiline Reactions 1680, p305 - 2 Dec 2017 Mild skin irritation: case report An 84-year-old woman developed mild skin irritation following treatment with selegiline [Emsam] and haloperidol [Haldol]. The woman, who had depression, started to receive transdermal selegiline 6 mg/day. Later, topical haloperidol gel 0.5mg twice daily was added due to her agitation and aggressive behaviours. Following three weeks of selegiline therapy, her depressive symptoms improved; however, she experienced mild skin irritation, which eventually resolved [durations of treatments to reaction onset not stated]. Her resistive behaviours continued especially at night; therefore, haloperidol at bedtime was increased to 1mg. The depressive symptoms returned after 8 months.

Following three weeks of selegiline therapy, her depressive symptoms improved; however, she experienced mild skin irritation, which eventually resolved [durations of treatments to reaction onset not stated].
