All I can say is anxiety (both generalized anxiety and social anxiety) are my number one issues. From there I deal with a mild depression or perhaps I should say, low energy, low motivation, trouble sleeping and poor concentration.

I know everyone is different, but so far I've had no side effects on EMSAM with anxiety. I had only a couple nights where I slept less in terms of hours, but still woke up feeling refreshed.

I'm more outgoing, more relaxed, more focused, more upbeat. The increased energy I feel is unlike the energy I used to get from a cup of coffee or provigil, it's smooth and suttle, no edge. I don't come crashing down later in the day.

Certainly everyone will respond differently to it just like all the other meds out there. My sense is that it's at the very least a good option, worth a try, for those that have failed to respond or have not been able to tolerate the side effects of other anti depressants whether for depression or anxiety.

Before trying it I read a lot that suggested it wouldn't be a good choice for someone like me. I'm just thankful my doctor thought it was worth a try. I just know there are others out there like me that will have success with it (though I'll be the first to admit that 12 days is not enough for conclusions).
