I will put in my two cents as an Emsam user. I've been on it since June. 6mg. Seems to work although the effect is not dramatic and may take a while to kick in. Took me at least 6 weeks.

Lightheadedness, headaches at beginning of trial.

Causes a bit of insomnia.

I think it is weight-neutral?

Your skin may be sensitive to it, in which case you will get the rashes. Best if you can rotate it to all the sites (I can't)

On the 6mg you do not need to follow the MAO diet (However, my pdoc did say "don't go eating a wheel of brie.") but you need to watch out for drug interactions (decongestants etc).

another thing, a lot of medical personnel seem to not know about this drug. they are not aware there is an MAOI in patch form.

Hope this helps. you may already know a lot of this info. I seem to remember you answering a lot of my questions!
