Selegilene: Interesting question. The simple answer to your first question is that selegiline is relatively safe for the liver, unless there is pre-existing liver disease. The main risk of selegiline is heart disease for patients with a history of heart attacks or those who use other medicines that affect the heart. Considering the other medicines you use, selegiline should be safe.
