I'm still void of any negative side effects. It amazes me as I've dealt with SAD and GAD all my life. I'd heard before trying EMSAM that oral selegiline would not be good for someone like me which was of concern, but so far my best start to any med.

One of the many reasons I have not been able to stay on the typical SSRI's and SNRI's was that I just felt more anxious and didn't sleep well (not to mention they didn't work).

Whenever I start a new med I tend to really pay attention to what I'm feeling, like a fear of when the side effects going to kick in and how bad will they be once here. Now at day 9 I put the patch on and don't give it a thought.

If my mood and energy were not better and if my anxiety was not more under control I'd think I was just putting on a piece of tape with no medicine.

My take is that for me I got a quick response, now things are improving gradually. My guess is that I won't know just how much EMSAM is going to benefit me until I get 3 to 4 weeks further out. At that time I can also determine if I will just stay on the 20mg patch or go up.

So at least in my case, a guy that primarily has anxiety issues with some depression, it's helping in all area's with NO side effects. I remain optimistic. Rob
