Re: Anyone on Emsam Patch Help? Beckett

Hello Becket,

Thanks for your reply. My Pdoc raised the dose after only 3 days of taking 6mg. My husband called her to ask about continuing Adderall at small doses, but she said no to that. She told him to to raise the dosage to the full 12mg by putting 2 patches on. I thought it was rather odd to titrate so drastically but I'm so desperate to feel well, I figured the higher the dose the better the outcome. I have been on the 12mg now around 10 days and aside from a little anxiety, I have not felt anything too worrisome.
I really hope she knows what she is doing. I've been her patient for over 10 years.
I'm so new to Maoi's and only know not to eat high tyramine foods and watch my blood pressure. I'm a little worried about all the possible interactions with other meds.
I have an appointment with another doctor to look into Deep tms as a possible option. I did 6 weeks of Rtms and felt about 60% better, though $12,000 poorer (insurance coverage is under appeal at this time).
My problem is I think I'm never going to feel better and become desperate. The fatigue, disinterest and lack of motivation make me feel so useless. That is why I liked Adderall and Vyvanse because they gave me energy and motivation, even if for a few hours; but I was becoming too dependent on them and the crash in the afternoon was killing me.
How did you fare with Emsam? For what I've read, I don't think too many people are on it.

Hope you're well,
ihatedrugs
