on the contrary, i yesterday asked my doc and 2 pharmacists re: benadryl OR any antihistime, such a zyrtec regular - NOT zyrtec-d - and emsam. their firm conclusion: benadryl and the like are NOT contra-indicated for emsam.

it is ONLY the decongestants - or combo decongestants and antihistimes - which, of course , will still contain psuedephedrine - OR - any of the newer non-psuedephedrine other drugs termed 'non drowsy' - with which emsam should NEVER be taken.

it's not serotonin or serotonin sydrome that's the worry (re: the former).

it IS raised bp, possibly to probably, very extreme, that IS. (re: the latter).

i'm no longer on emsam, but like to find out all i can...'just in case'... even though i'm in full mdd remsision now w/no ad.
this is because my real hope is that someday w/in my lifetime there will be the options, if needed ever again for me, of one to many ads , that will come in the patch form. for me, that would be one/s that are NOT maois.
