I started on Emsam 6mg a little over 3 weeks ago. I have not yet noticed any significant benefits. I saw my doctor on Tuesday, and he moved me up to the 9mg (a little more quickly than usual due to some problems I'm having). If it's going to help, I'll probably see some results within the next few weeks.

As to benadryl, I would not take it. The waiver my doctor had me sign listed decongestants in the warnings and I believe the Emsam site does also. While I understand that the food interactions are less of an issue with Emsam, I would be very, very careful with other meds.

Showering/bathing is no problem. The patch will stay on as long as you don't scrub it or submerge it for long periods. But, once it's off, the adhesive does not allow effective reapplication.

Good luck.
