Lepus, I understand your hesitancy now to start a new med. Could you have a nurse visit you? Also, are there any university clinics in you area? Even if you needed to travel a bit to have confidence in someone overseeing what could be a delicate balancing act. I'm sorry you are facing such decisions.

I wanted to update you on my emsam experience. I'm tolerating it really well, which is surprising the jeepers out of my doctors. I feel more physical and mental energy. That's good. However....a big however, there is a core of anxiety it isn't addressing. My xanax usage has risen and I take Valium nightly for sleep. No one, including myself, is pleased with this part. Where this leads, I don't know.

Let me say it's working better, even the benzo use factored in, so far than my snri cocktail. Just being able to get out of bed is stress relief of sorts.

So, it's not a magic bullet for stress :(

It's not harming me :)

It has an actual AD effect :)

You might tolerate it well enough to be able to prove to both yourself and your doctor that you might tolerate Nardil.

Super good luck with this.
