> Today is is the beggining of my 3rd day. Last night though I continued to have an increase in dreaming, I slept like a rock and woke up refreshed, something I'm not used to.
>
> I continue to have a slight smooth increase in energy (not anxiety) and mood. I seem more alert, had lots of laughs with my family yesterday. I stayed up later than usual last night without fatigue. I did notice I was quite "frisky", more than normal.
>
> As far as side effects go, I just haven't felt any. So far none of the typical side effects I have gotten from other anti depressants such as an increase in anxiety or fatigue, insomnia, headache, confusion, none of it. I'm one of those that feels everything, I'm med sensitive, but I feel none of it.
>
> It's weird to feel more "normal" if you will, I'm not used to it. After all I heard that selegiline (oral) would not be good for those with anxiety even in patch form (a primary concern of mine) I'm quite pleased.
>
> The only negative thing I can say is the cost, but I hopefully the price will go down or insurance will pay part of the cost. Lastly I'm having no issues with skin site reactions. It's real simple to change, no redness and sticks good, not a hassle. Since I am going in a hot tub today I put the patch high on my chest so that it wouldn't be soaking in "hot" water, as heat is an issue.
>
> Again, way to soon to make judgements, but this is the best start I've had with a medicine to relieve my energy/mood issues an hopefully more of my social anxiety. I hate to post such a positive post because I don't want to put the "wami" on it and know this could be temporary. I'm really looking forward to seeing where I am in a week.
>
> My thoughts now are whether this will completely replace klonopin or whether it will be the belnd I have been looking for, time will tell. As this is my first try with an MAOI I'll just say from what I can tell, they rock! I've always been envious of those that have had such great resposes to Nardil and Parnate, but I'm starting to understand their enthusiasm. I'll continue to post my results. Rob


Wow...I am very impressed! And, very happy for you Rob. Here's to continued effectiveness of EMSAM!!
