> I seem to have a mental health issue no one can figure out. I have terrible anxiety and have for 20 years. I also have what seems to be atypical depression. I sleep a lot and eat a lot. I have now been agoraphobic for over a year and am becoming more and more unhinged. More things set off anxiety, such as taking medications, and my mood is horrible.
> My pdoc has prescribed EMSAM at 6mg. From everything I have read it makes anxiety worse. I can't handle more anxiety. I have told the doctors this concern. I have been on every drug. I have tried every class of drug except the MAOIs. With my health fears I think she is afraid to start me off on Nardil.
> I want to be hospitalized but there are no beds available for simply stabilizing patients. You have to be suicidal or homicidal.
> Please help. I think I'm going to die this way.

I would agree with SLS - I think Nardil is the way forward. I have read countless reports both on here and on the web as how effective Nardil is for anxiety and neurotic depression. I want to it try myself but my doctor is not so keen. I think I'll need to do some persuading.

The main side effects as far as I can out out are insomnia, sexual dysfunction and some weight gain, but apparently they are outweighed by Nardil's beneficial effects.

Interestingly, I had a good response to memantine a few years back on an unrelated drugs trial. Like you I suffer from severe GAD, panic disorder and depression. It seem to give me a calming effect. it might be worth trying brfore the Nardil if you can persuade your doctor to prescribe it.

If that doesn't work I'd head straight for Nardil. It could be the answer your looking for.

Good luck!
