I hate to go off topic because I want my other q answered, but since it is you, I will. For starters, you must know that I am trying these MAOIs for anxiety first, and then any possible depression. Here is where both stand after FOUR WEEKS:

EMSAM (6mg patch): Felt more energy the first day I put it on, trouble sleeping but Seroquel was finally helping and getting about 7 hours per night, still had hours of midrange anxiety each day or every other day, could eat anything I want and no other side effects.

NARDIL (45 mg): Felt drugged like being shot by an elephant dart but daytime sedation seems to lessen over time, still have trouble sleeping and get 4-5 hours per night, had maybe three days with a few hours of midrange anxiety and one day with a few hours of high anxiety in the 28 days which is great for me, also have some insomnia, constipation and oh yeah blackouts when standing up quickly. You know what's weird about Nardil? When I dont get my sleep, it sends me into an absolute panic mode. But with Nardil, the lack of sleep just makes me feel really tired but takes away the anxiety therefore I dont panic.

IN SUMMARY: Nardil didn't really kick in for me until week 7. At that point, I rated it a 6 on a scale of 1-10. The only reason I am trying Nardil is because others I know hit 9 or 10 with Nardil. With my job slowing down for the summer, this was the perfect time to give this med a trial for 8-12 weeks, once and for all.

Declan, thanks for your insight many of my posts. I appreciate your care, concern and interest. Feel free to ask me anything anytime.
