Emsam was just not working for me even at 12mg patch. Plus I was having an allergic reaction to the patch. I was on nothing and had been off Emsam for two weeks when I started ECT. I am not so sure ECT has been helpful either. I quit after 7 shocks because I was becoming so disoriented and confused, and anterograde amnesia was reeking havoc with me. I have now just started on Desipramine. I don't know if it will work or not. Most antidepressants have not worked with me because I end up with an allergic reaction or bad side effects early on. Back in the 1980's Parnate worked really well for me. And I was doing fine for around 12 to 15 years on no meds. In 2005 I developed all sorts of physical problems - COPD, sleep apnear, had to have cervical spine surgery, surgery to my nose, got diagnosed with GERD as well. I started getting depressed again, and again could not take most antidepressants. Parnate did not work this time, and my last try was Emsam. I don't know that I would do ECT again. The anesthesia part was a very bad experience for me as well as the disorientation and confusion. Good luck with ECT and be careful. I am started to feel more depressed again, and so I don't know what that is going to mean. My last ECT was on March 23rd. I started Desipramine on March 29th.
