My doc understands I have anhedonia, but at first I think he was going to prescribe me a regular ol' SNRI until I convinced him my problem might be dopamine. He said he wasn't sure more dopamine would help, since the Adderall did not raise my interest levels or desire to do things. But he prescribed me the EMSAM anyway and now I am on my third week. As predicted, EMSAM's actions on dopamine haven't done a thing.

After this EMSAM trial fails I'll try to convince him to prescribe me a tricyclic. Or perhaps another MAOI like Nardil or Parnate. Or maybe Prozac? I really don't know at this point.
