Discussions that mention emsam

Depression board


My Dr gave me samples of Emsam transdermal patches. Has anyone tried them? I put one on 9 hours ago, so far so good. She said they came on the market 6 months ago and are very expensive. She recommended them because they are patches so the med is not processed through your liver, which is healthier for your liver and because they have a very very low incidence of side effects. I seem to be very sensitive to side effects....must be my anxiety.
Hi, thats great the patch is working. Do you have to stop taking all other anti-depressants if you take Emsam? What about at just the 6mg dose?
thanks,
Dave
