The first question that comes to mind is why you would jump from Prozac to Emsam if Prozac seemed to be working for you (despite the side effects)?

Emsam and Prozac work very differently and their primary effects are on different neutrotransmitters. If Prozac was working well for you then that would be an indication to try another SSSRI or other med that had its primary effect on your serotonin levels but with less side effects than Prozac.

Most people are jumping to Emsam because nothing else worked for and MAOI's work quite differently from other meds. To make such a dramatic shift from a med that was working for you makes very little sense to me.
