According to EMSAM package insert, a time period equal to 4-5 half lives (approx 1 week) of treatment with SSRI's, SNRI's, TCA's, MAOI's, meperidine and other analgesics (listed in package insert) should elapse before starting Emsam.

The exception is for prozac where you should wait 5 weeks due to it's long half life. Buspar requires 2 week washout. Those are the only two exceptions to the 1 week rule.
