> From the research I have done, I thought it took a couple weeks for MAO inhibition to take place and mood to improve. Do you know something I dont?? No side effects for me so far which is unheard of.

Same for me, no side effects, amazing. As far as MAO inhibition and or response time I read in the initial studies and else where that some individuals reported anti depressant benefits in as little as a week. I don't remember where, but I also read responses did occur with some individuals in as little as 5 days, that both MAOI-A and B would start to kick in. That said I think it will take at least 3 to 4 weeks to really see how well EMSAM works, what to expect.

It's my understanding it just works faster via the patch, going staight to the blood opposed to going through the gut. One reason side effects are minimized. I don't have the scientific explanation as to why, perhaps others here can elaborate on it.

All I know is this is my 6th day and I'm noticing a significant improvement. I'm looking forward to seeing how things are a month from now. Certainly lack of side effects is a good sign for both of us.

We'll see. Post how your doing and good luck! Rob
