It's interesting that you're having an increase in dreaming, Robert David. The other MAOI's tend to eliminate dreaming. Though of course you haven't been on it very long. I'll be seeing my pdoc at the end of April and hopefully he'll prescribe this, though I'm a little worried about the cardiac effects. I got a copy of my EKG that was done pre-op knee surgery while weaning off Marplan and discovered that not only did the Marplan dramatically lower my heart rate and blood pressure, which I was well aware of, but I also had "premature atrial complexes". It probably had nothing to do with the Marplan itself, but from going off the Atenolol which I've been on for years but had to go off because the Marplan lowered my blood pressure so much. Off the Marplan and back on the Atenolol the premature atrial complexes were gone, but I'm concerned that Emsam will also have an extreme blood pressure lowering effect. Still, I feel I have to give it a try. I have no belief that anything's going to help my depression, life without depression is unimaginable to me, but it's like a compulsion to keep trying.....
