> Probably not much consolation either, but the fact that you care about your family so much that they keep you here is an amazing gift of love that you should be proud of and shows that theres love in you- there's gotta be atleast some hope in that. Otherwise, have you tried parnate? You said nardil had some decent AD effect for you, and parnate is a similar drug. I just started parnate, and haven't had really any side effects besides some dry mouth and a little difficulty sleeping.

Actually I tried Parnate before I tried Nardil. I think I had *every* side-effect they list on their little drug info sheet, even the rare ones. I couldn't tolerate it for more than a few days to a week I think.

Nardil, at least one of the times I took it, basically "stole" my sleep cycle from me, then at random time, I'd find myself asleep on the floor of my computer room for 2-4 hours at a time. I literally had no sleep cycle. Tried all sorts of sleep aids, nothing helped. Then, over a period of a few months, the insomnia went away, but I had other side-effects, like nausea, dizziness, headaches, and other stuff I forget right now.

I still have about a month's supply of Emsam left. Maybe I could try the cortizone cream. Unfortunately, just having the patch on all day itches terribly, so just keeping in on was tough.
Can you cut them (I have the strongest dose) patch in half, and wear it in two places?
