Liquid deprenyl cannot be obtained from Discovery Experimental &
Development. Their liquid deprenyl product has not yet been approved
by the FDA, and it appears that it is not likely to be approved in
the near future. If you call them, you will probably stimulate a
paranoid response because of ongoing litigation with the FDA and
Somerset Pharmaceuticals (the makers of  Eldepryl-brand deprenyl).

Discovery of Florida has licensed their liquid deprenyl technology
to Discovery of Mexico, which makes it available to US customers
through distributor B&B Freight (619-661-0010). The arrangements
are quite convoluted because of legal issues. It's cash only, and
you can't use the US mail service. You must use a private carrier
like UPS or FedEx. You can get the address for where to send the
cash through the phone number above.

We were quite nervous about the cash-only policy when it was first
established, but it has been in effect for more than a year with
zero problems for our subscribers. Apparently, the shipments are
made from within the United States and do not go through Customs.
Because of this, we have yet to hear of any detentions. B&B has
been exceptionally reliable. Standard delivery is 3-5 weeks.

One last word of caution. When sending cash, take added precautions
like using a Tyvek (untearable) envelope and addressing each nested
envelope with the full address of B&B freight.
