Re: Johann, I dont get it, 12mg Emsam = less anxiety? UgottaHaveHope

In reply to Johann, I dont get it, 12mg Emsam = less anxiety?, posted by UgottaHaveHope on April 14, 2007, at 1:09:07

My anxiety is not gone, but it's less. I haven't used any klonopin on an as-needed basis for a few months now, it seems, which is a pretty good measure. When I was at the lecture by the principal research of EMSAM, he said that it is known, off label, to work very well with panic disorder--and thus anxiety in general.

Let me know how you're doing with the Nardil. Since it's known to be particularly good with anxiety, maybe I should consider it.

> Johann: I also took Emsam for three months, primarily for generalized anxiety. I took the 6mg patch and it gave me extra energy, which did not help my anxiety. I took Klonopin and Seroquel to help counter that. My anxiety was 6-7 out of 10 on Emsam, but I wanted to try 10, therefore an am on second week of Nardil.

Very intersted (will go back to if Nardil does not work after two months, and I guess I will try 12 since it is working for you, which makes me happy).
