Re: Emsam: constant dosing?

My pdoc just told me that the company making Emsam doesn't promise constant, time-release absorption of the drug from the patch.

More likely, absorption varies considerably. First of all, it varies from person to person. But also, it varies within 24 hours.

The most the company claims is that you'll get about 6 mg (actually probably between 4-6 mg) from the 6 mg patch every twenty-four hours. But there's a good chance, for example that the highest absorption could be at the beginning right after application of the patch.

I'm not sure this matter so much, under good conditions, as long as you replace the patch every 24 hours.
