Klonopin is the only med that has worked for me regarding social anxiety. I'm going to try EMSAM if and when it becomes available (I understand we'll get an answer from the FDA soon).

Klonopin alone has not been the answer and I've always held out on trying an MAOI, Nardil in particular. I need help with some depression that I think Klonopin may agrivate a bit. I'd like a little additional help with the social anxiety without going higher on klonopin.

So If EMAM is approved I'm going on it. It's my understanding that the side affects will be much less than oral MAOI's not to mention the food issue. Plus I like the fact that it's a 24 hour patch and the medicine trickles in steady over that period as opposed to mutilple daily dosing.

My doc thinks that EMSAM may be able to completely replace klonopin, but if not, I'm fine with blending the two. If EMSAM isn't approved I think I'm just going to give in and try Nardil.
