Why does there need to be a washout between EMSAM and bupropion? Is it because of the possibility of excessive norepinephrine levels resulting in hypertension, or is there something that I've missed? Also, does anyone have any thoughts on what the minimum washout between stopping EMSAM and starting bupropion is? I know the official number is 14 days, but I'll never manage that. I'm shooting for a week, but really it would be better if I didn't have to wait that long as I'm in a position that has very little tolerance degraded performance. I don't understand why the washout needs to be very long at all given the mere 9.5 hour half-life.
