Well, the GP changed his mind, or more likely, formed an opinion on EMSAM, and decided against prescribing it. So no script for EMSAM, despite years of depression and anxiety. Basically, he told me he had read that studies, and this was an "MAOI" (emphasis not added). Thought that you'd need to be on the MAOI diet on all doses ( not correct ). Thought that MAOIs had been discontinued some while ago ( not correct). So, given the level of knowledge, I think he's probably right, find someone who realizes what the entire point of this medication is: MAOI efficacy without the fear of killing your patient. Its just disappointing, that I have to find a psychiatrist who basically says, how are you feeling today, as opposed to a GP who asks the same thing.
