Emsam, ADD-Anxiety-Dysthemia

Hi - new here and I've been waiting for emsam for some time. Thanks all for this thread and your experiences.

I have a primary diagnosis of innatentive type ADD with comorbid dysthemia and anxiety although I've never been convinced this an accuratee diagnosis as anxiety (particularly social with some relatively constant (and nebulous) GAD features.

I currently take adderall and it is somewhat effective for concentration and (temporarily) for depression and motivation (of which I have very little). I also take a small dose of xanax prn when I can't deal.

I think my problems are highly dopamine related but when I attempted to use wellbutrin it made me, basically, nuts. More importantly I tried oral selegilene and while the antideepresent effect was relatively dramatic there was accompanying anxiety and a weird agitation that caused me to have to discontinue it. (I wasn't on a benzo at the time - in fact I had just come off one a month prior.)

I'm curious if anyone here has a simialiar set of symtoms and/or has had similiar responses to wellbutrin or, more importantly, oral selegilene and has found emsam to be effecctive. Is response to oral selegilene any indicator of potential successs/failure with emsam?

The antidepressent effect with oral selegilene was rapid and unlike any AD response I've ever had (and I've tried a bunch) - I'm just concerned with the anxiety side effects and whether or not they improve with time.

Thanks!!

For what it's worth, I am ADHD also. I have been on Wellbutrin twice...both times with disatrous results so I'm with you on that. I also have had anxiety problems and obviously the "turd" as I call it (treatment resistant depression).

I totally remember the days of constant anxiety and just how crappy it can make you feel. My particular problem was agoraphobia and there were a lot of years that I didn't take a stimulant because I couldn't handle the extra "kick".

I am still in my first week of Emsam, but I have not had any anxiety symptoms. I know from reading here that others have though. I'll give you one vote for no anxiety. In fact, I've had no negative symptoms at all except the darn rash where the patches are. Mine last for about 2 days. They don't hurt, but the site is red.

I'm only on my 5th day of Emsam, but the first 4 days I put the patch on my breastbone area and the area breastbone area. The patches stuck great. Yesterday I put the patch on the outside part of my arm slightly down from my shoulder and it didn't come off, but it didn't stick as well there so I'm back to the chest area.

No matter where I put it though, I end up with a red rash that lasts 2 days. It stings to remove the patch too, that's for sure, but I'm not giving it up. I've actually started using my treadmill again which is big for me...

Thank you for providing this link, Tigereyes. I seriously doubt that there would be diet problems with this delivery system but just in the small small chance that you do would you please let us know? The only food that would be a remotely possible problem is soy and the occasional pizza, I can't have alot anyway or I would eat nohting else and get big as a house. I have no intention of going to 9mg yet, just can always use all info.

thanks so much for your contibution,

I absolutely cannot take Wellbutring under any of its extended or non extended release forms and I have tried over and over expecting different results out of despiration to get off the couch and it always made me rageful and socially paranoid. But this is so not the case with the Patch. If anyone can go by my personal experience, please don't let a wellbutrin failure/disaster stop you from trying the patch. I had the same worry and it is groundless for me.

In reply to Re: dosage tygereyes, posted by Donna Louise on May 8, 2006, at 6:36:16

A couple of points from some of the previous posts:

I too had terrible luck with Wellbutrin, more anxiety and more socially withdrawn. Not the case with EMSAM to this point though.

Though I had no redness initially, lately I have noticed a few red marks here and there that last about 2 days. Seems I get them on my chest and arms, but not my back. Certainly not a big issue for me. Today I put it on top of my shoulders towards my neck. Perhaps it's just in my mind, but lately I have noticed a slight increase in energy when I place the patch on my upper body compared to my stomach area. It's probably just in my head, but?

Lastly, my doctor mentioned that at the 30 & 40mg patch dose he didn't think there would be issues with diet restrictions, that the FDA just didn't get enough info to approve it that way. That if I needed to go to a higher dose to just "test" the worst food offenders. That most likely there won't be issues. Certainly the drug interactions are there for all doses.

Just my 2 cents worth. Still doing great on EMSAM. Rob

In reply to Re: dosage, posted by RobertDavid on May 8, 2006, at 12:46:44

I posted this on another thread, but maybe this is a better place to ask.

I'm interested in EMSAM, esp. whether it's a lot more effective than selegiline. My psych doctor originally was against selegiline, on the basis that it wasn't effective; now he's high on EMSAM.

I'm confused, because I could have taken high doses of selegiline, probably, because I was on v. high dose of Parnate without any hypertensive problems. My biggest problem with Parnate was that, rather unusually, it put me to sleep. That's why I needed the high dose--otherwise I was basically asleep all the time.

It wasn't in retrospect a very good idea, but nothing else so far has worked. Except for the cymbalta--which was okay, worth it, but not really great.

I'm just wondering, basically, if selegiline is a rather weak Maoi, why would Emsam be so great-- if the issue of dose is taken out of the picture. And how much of a difference does the larger dose make?

Jost.

You obviously didn't see the studies (and the incredible graph) where they showed the pressor response to cheese in fluoxetine, tranylcypromine, and EMSAM at the three different doses. Tranylcypromine produced a pressor response after one bite of cheese.

AT 40 MGS OF EMSAM, THE SUBJECTS COULD NOT PRODUCE A PRESSOR RESPONSE; there was a slight increase in BP.

AND did you see the studies where it said that NONE of the subjects, REGARDLESS of dose, did NOT follow the MAOI diet and NO ONE had a hypertensive crisis?

Donna,

For most people, pizza is not a problem as long as it is not made with "exotic" cheeses. I ate MANY slices of pizza on 90 mgs Parnate and NEVER had a crisis occur. :)

Lymom and DonnaLouise thank you both. Very, very, encouraging.

I had the same exact response to all forms of wellbutrin. The stuff was like LSD. The package insert should have had directions to the trip-out tent.

I don't understand why you have to be so hostile about it. Everyone is here looking for information. None of us are experts. Obviously we all have issues here or we wouldn't be looking for a medication to make us feel better. We aren't all suicidal either and people have a right to be cautious with their health without being talked down to like they are idiots. Please can't we be nice?

I didnt see the studies, where are they? I have read plenty on emsam but not seen that yet. Yes I did read where no one followed the diet but I dont know what they ate. I suppose someone ate chinese didnt they? :)

He was originally against it before the pharmaceutical salesman offered him a free round at Pebble Beach where he confirmed, with several colleagues, over a complementary Martini, that it was indeed, effective :)

ahhh...I'm a cynic..sorry.

There were relatively few studies on selegilene til emsam (I know - I scoured the web)and my guess is that not many doctors wanted to open themselves up to litigation to prescribe an "anti-parkinsons" MAOI off-label. They also had little solid evidence.

Thanks, Spooly. .

I did some reading on it a while back--but it was mostly a person here or there recommending it. Maybe not a large enough sample.

So maybe he was just being cautious-- or hadn't met the right drug rep. ---

Although my doctor would never take one of those junkets to paradise. He's utterly beyond any breath of such doings.... I'm sure.....

I tried your idea of putting it on the breastbone and it is sticking just fine there. I take it off during a hot shower and kind of let the water push it off while I help just a little with the peeling. Maybe that would help your irritation.

According to my doctor, you can use Benedryl cream over the patch while you wear it and
after removal if you still have the rash.

best of luck!

In reply to Re: Emsam, ADD-Anxiety-Dysthemia spooly, posted by Donna Louise on May 8, 2006, at 6:43:22

I fit the ADD-Anxiety-Dysthemia profile. Though I've also had hypomanias, so it's being called BPII. I also suspect my problems are dopamine-related (because I have restless leg syndrome, which is dopamine-related) and LOVE amphetamine-like drugs, like psuedoephedrine, which are basically dopamine-reuptake-inhibitors. In relatively low doses they make me calm and focused, motivated and happy. But not hypomanic happy. HOWEVER - I hated Wellbutrin. Made me agitated and miserable. (Zoloft -- the first thing I tried -- made me basically numb, tired all the time, and not much less depressed). Lamictal gave me mixed results, ultimately more bad than good, so I quit it. I'll be watching this EMSAM stuff closely...

I started my fourth week of EMSAM on Wednesday. I was having much more anxiety than normal for the first few weeks, but it has now decreased (to no more than normal levels and perhaps even lower - though I am a bit of a pessimist so maybe it is even better). I have started sleeping better too this past week after several weeks of very poor sleep. This seems to be fairly similar to other people's experiences so far, but I just wanted to share my experience so far. Overall I probably still feel better than I have felt in longer than I can remember. This is the best response I have ever had to any AD and I have been on way too many.

Greetings. A search for EMSAM side effect info brought me to this board today, and much helpful insight. My diagnosis; treatment resistant depression (bipolar, a rapid cycler but in a major depressive state for quite some time) I have a knowledgable, well-regarded Dr, (psychopharmacologist) but because all we've tried so far has been only marginally successful, I've opted for a VNS implant. When insurance approval finalizes, I'll be implanted. It sounded like Sci-Fi in the beginning, but now sounds about as crazy as the pharmaceutical cocktail I swallow every day & its multitude of side effects, known & unknown. Which brings me back to my original point; I've developed serious leg cramps, more like lower body aching, hips down, actually, like I've run a marathon. Believe me, I haven't. I also had a mystery swelling in my neck that made breathing & swallowing difficult, just short of the need to take a trip to the ER but I did go to my PCP. He ordered an ultrasound, decided it was a cyst that burst. All coinciding w/ the start of my patch. I have no site irritation, other than it hurts like heck pulling them off. I switch off on the upper arm area. Showering is no issue, but if you pull one slightly off or touch it while applying, forget it - it won't stick. I've used surgical tape in that case, since they're so expensive I didn't want to toss it & start over w/ a new patch even though my insurance covers them, currently. I did read (just today) about the possibility of cysts & muscle "stiffness", but these don't seem to be common side effects, and my Dr. didn't expect me to experience any significant side effects. This is so new, however, how can we really know? I have high hopes for this, as my Dr has another pt with TRD who is also using a similar combination of meds, including EMSAM, and it seemed to be the magic bullet for him. Does anyone have more experience with EMSAM use, or its side effects?

It's been the majic bullet for me. No side effect issues. I'm going into my 6th week and have never felt better. Though everyone is different, no side effects for me other than improved mood, more energy, not depressed.

Though I suppose it's possible for you to get the side effects you're having from EMSAM, I'd think it's unlikely, most likely unrealated. Even if it is listed as a possible side effect it may have been just something someone experience in the trial that was unrelated to the drug. They have to list every side effect people get whether or not it's related to the medication, the drug companies want to cover their butts.

I hope it works for you! Rob

The only side effect I can say that I have had is a slightly higher pulse. My BP dropped to normal because it was too high from other meds. I have had no orthostatic hypertension or anything like that. I have had none of the other side effects I have gotten from all the sri's and such. nothing. Not even a site irritation. As Robert said, more than likely what you are having is coincidence but ya just never know about these things I guess anything is possible.

oh yeah that raises a good question. Anyone on EMSAM have high blood pressure? I take a relatively low dose of Avalide for blood pressure (160/100 before medication). It's normalized now but I'm curious if anyones had increased blood pressure as a direct result of EMSAM.

Any hypertensives out there on EMSAM?

I am on my fourth week and I have noticed a little muscle "achiness" near the patch placement, but that is it. If I put the patch on my upper arm some times it kind of feels as if I had a flu shot or something. If I put the patch on my lower back I get some lower back pain. I don't notice it when it is on the chest area, so I tend to favor that placement. It is not a big enough deal to cause me to change me mind about EMSAM but at times it is a bit annoying...
