In reply to EMSAM WORKS!, posted by psychlover on February 6, 2008, at 16:24:52
Yeah, I have suffered from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) for years, and am actually on disability for it. Was even sent to the state hospital under commitment due to several serious suicide attempts.
I have been given every antidepressant under the sun, with little to no effect, or too many side effects.
Then, a wonderful ER doctor mentioned EMSAM to me, and asked me to talk to my psychiatrist about it. Although he was a little reluctant because he didnt like the restrictions associated with MAOI's, he gave it a try.
I have been on it for 7 months, not at max dose, and it has saved my life!
Yes, there are some restrictions - mainly with medications. I have been able to tolerate most of the food restrictions. Please use care tho, each person and dose is different.
I am finally happy again! EMSAM saved my life!
It DOES work. I wish more docs were aware of it, and just how wonderful it is.
Side effects: little to none. NO SEXUAL side effects, thank god. little insomnia. Minor irritation if I reuse the same site for the patch. Otherwise - NOTHING!
