For me, emsam has done what no other ad med has had the capacity to do (and I’ve tried quite a few). I've used it for about 10 months and would currently consider myself to have progressed to a long awaited state of relatively blissful functional normalcy. For the record it took about 6 weeks to even begin to work for me, but continued to improve for at least the first 6 months (no kidding) as the beneficial effects increased and the side effects faded (other than these occasional but quite tolerable jerks). I'm on the 12mg patch btw.

Also for a time at one point some months ago I tried combining DL-phenylalanine and it almost entirely eliminated the positive effects derived from use of emsam. This downturn was perceivable about 2 days into the experiment was realized on the third and persisted for another 3 or 4 after DLP was discontinued. Perhaps mine was an isolated case confined to my own peculiar body chemistry, but based on my experience, I'd highly recommend avoid this combo, particularly if your condition hasn’t improved sufficiently to provide enough perspective to recognize a downturn.
