> Very interesting. By the way, are you going to break down and try the EmSam patch?

Actually, I have spent the last couple of weeks tapering and discontinuing Parnate. At this point, my doctor would like to see how I do on a combination of Lamictal and Wellbutrin. I am not very optimistic. In the past, Wellbutrin has made my depression worse, not better. It produced quite a bit of dysphoria the last time I tried it. In any event, that seems to be the next thing on the list.

I have never been a big believer in the capacity of selegiline to treat severe depression. I hope that I am wrong. I get the feeling that a great many people will migrate over to the EmSam patch. We will get a good idea as to the success rate of this drug early. Of course, we will not get a good idea of how valuable this drug is in mainstream psychiatry by looking at how many people improve on it here on PB. We tend to be a treatment-resistant population. No drug looks good here.
