I don't think it's necessary to follow the diet for the first few days. The 6 mg patch is very safe; at the time emsam came out, I read part of the presentation to the FDA (which was on the web) and it seemed that they had done studies that suggested that the 9 mg patch and also the 12 mg/day dose were also very safe-- I've used more than 12 mg a day with no food reactions at all.

You do need to adhere to restrictions about drug interactions.of course.

Many people approach Maois as if they're a loaded gun, but really aren't. They're medications that have been used by many many people in all circumstances-- some of these drugs, like parnate, over many decades. And while there are some limits--, unless you're very careless, they are quite reliable and safe. And if you're worried, you can be moderate-- to be honest, I once ate a whole jar of dill pickles at a sitting without noticing a thing.

The greatest concern really, is that you'll need more than 6 mg to respond. A lot of people do. I certainly do. Plus, really, you need a doctor who doesn't undermine your confidence and determination--and who has some experience with these drugs and therefore will work with them. Confidence is important too!--

But what you need most fb is to forge ahead. Use self soothing if you get anxious-- and keep in mind that Emsam simply is safe-- you're nowhere near the edge.
