Thanks for the update.

"I could personally restore honor and integrity to the Oval Office."

ROFL Has it enhanced your sense of humor or are you normally this witty?

Seriously, I feel your pain. *bites lower lip*
(I'm not making light of you, just think a good laugh is good medicine and appreciate when someone throws one my way.) Those side effects truly stink - any one of them would. The debilitatiing results of sleep deprivation cut across the board. I've wrestled with sexual dysfunction of one sort or another when on SSRI's, Nardil, and other AD's (fortunately not with EMSAM so far) and after two or three months always came to the conclusion that it just wasn't worth it. My experience has been that the ED or more commonly anorgasmia never got better with time either. And what a kick in the teeth that the desire never left, just the necessary ability to satisfy it. *shakes fist at the heavens*

I wish I were the kind of poster who could offer you some useful advice. When faced with endless sleepness nights I just stole naps whenever I could - it didn't make my nights any worse and it did help with my own functionality some. Its good to hear you're clear on your issues and determined to address them with your doctor. Best of luck with that.

I'm following the EMSAM posts with interest because I've been on it myself for about 6 weeks now, and I'm trying to glean some insights from other people's experiences, particularly about whether its worth giving a higher dose a try. So far so good - if I could get more of what I've been getting out of it more consistently, I could see my life changing. After a couple of decades (!) that's almost too much to comprehend.
