Today is my 7th day on EMSAM (20mgs). To this point I have felt absolutely no side effects. As mentioned I'm med sensitive and typically have trouble making it the first 30 days on any med, in fact, I had to bail in just a few days on remeron and serzone.

I do feel better and if this is the best I get on EMSAM I'll continue taking it. I feel more stable, more upbeat, better concentration and a little more outgoing. It's certainly all I could hope for especially in such a short time.

Since it's only been one week it's my hope that it will just get better as my blood levels of selegiline increase.

I too remember reading Adams posts with extreme interest. I was amazed with his response, then sad to read about him doing poorly when he had to switch to oral selegiline . Then he stopped posting. I wonder how he is today, if he's back on EMSAM now that it's out.

As far as EMSAM, we're all different and certainly those who try it will have different responses. I'm treating SAD/GAD with dysthimia, others for other disorters. I'm blending it (for now) with klonopin and others may blend it with something else or as mono therapy. That will certainly play into results and response times.

Anyway, I found psycho babble by seeking info on EMSAM and other social anxiety medications when ran across one of Adams posts on google. That ultimately led me to joining the board about 6 months ago. I just want to say that since joining I've learned so much and am thankful to all of you sincere, savvy and considerate people here.
