Stargazer, I did not discuss switching from the patch to the pills with my doctor. I haven't felt anything good yet but my problem is the patch is not going on me right, sometimes they peel off a little ,which means I am not getting all my meds. I am obssessing that I don't have the patch on right to I was thinking about the pills.

I have tried many AD meds. None have helped me that much but with that being said SSRI;s worked the best for me so far. Effexor and Anafranal where terrable.

I am a little nervous about Nardil. Is it a lot different then Emsam? If MAO's don't work I will probably go to Lexapro but I want to give MAOI's a fair shot.
