Sounds like a plan, to me, Jelly.

Sorry I can't pull out the prescription pad. (I've been out of town, which is why I haven't been posting, by the way.)

Sleep could be an issue. So far, I remove the Emsam patch around midnight (or whenever I go to bed, or a little before). Then, since I wake up a few times, I put one on several hours before I get up. It hasn't been as disruptive for me, that way.

Ambien or xanax, and sometimes Sonata, help to get to sleep, esp. Sonata, when I wake up close to when I have to be up for good. Maybe Lunesta and something, if Lunesta works well, once your mood improves. (Didn't work for me, and caused a bad taste-- a known side effect.)

Are you calling your GP this week? Esp. since your classes start so soon....?

With any luck, you'll have a fairly rapid response to Emsam.

One other thought: you might need 9 mg, if you take the patch off at night, because the overall amount absorbed is less. You don't want to go below 6 mg-- esp.l since many people need more than 6 mg. (I've been using the 12 mg, so as to achieve about a 9 mg dose.)

Remember, MAOI's are anti-depressants: a good thing, not a bad thing. You have no reason to apologize for wanting it.
