I am a little concerned that I may be developing some cardiac side effects but since I have a history of cardiac issues it is hard to tell if this is something new or just regular/irregular cardiac irregularity. Theoretically Emsam is not contraindicated with my cardiac meds and I would be really ticked to have to stop after forking over the $200 not covered by my insurance. But I am still willing to be patient and to wait and see. I have had orthostatic hypotension with mutiple meds in the past and it is something I can deal with (as long as I don't stand up to quickly and pass out in public). I will keep an eye on it- luckily I used to work in the emergency medical field in my younger years.

> Thanks for the info. Sounds like the standing low blood pressure issue is not out of the ordinary for you. And if there aren't drug interactions which appears to be the case it would seem you may get past that or hopefully at worst it will be a minor issue.
> As far as when is best to put it on, like you said, I'm not sure it matters as it's supposed to trickle steadily for 24 hours, I just like putting it on in the morning. It's just part of my routine now, I think nothing of it.
> There are a few people I know personally that are not here on psycho babble that have started taking it without side effect issues, though no conclusions can be made after just a few days. But for me, 2 weeks out, I'm getting more and more convinced it's my answer. I've never felt so good, motivated, happy.
> I'm very intersested in hearing how you're doing and am hopeful that you'll start to feel better. Please keep posting how you're doing, many here need feedback from you and others.

Hi Rob,
I just wanted to tell you that i am very happy for you. :) Your story is similar to mine with Parnate. It's a breath of fresh air to see someone like you doing so well on EMSAM...I think, like me, and many others here, you have suffered way too much, and way too long! Isn't it nice to finally feel GOOD!? You have been an inspiration to so many hopeless people here..I particular like what you wrote to Phillipa yesterday. Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS, keep up the good work, and may God continue to bless the "New Rob" on EMSAM! :)
