The issue in GetHuman-kvnwht's own words
I have been living with clinical depression for ver ** years. So has my brother. We've been through every SSRI, SSNRI manufactured, zero results. I found a Dr who prescribed MAOI Nardil, phenelzine. It worked. Told my brother and his Dr said MAOI is too dangerous, talked him into ECT. Didn't work, he can barely function. In January the Dr who prescribed Nardil closed his practice. I finally found a Dr who is older, knows these drugs can be helpful to traditional depression treatment. Rather than trial and error I took a genetic test to see what antidepressant would work for me. Prestiq and Emsam. * weeks of Prestiq and no results. Dr switched to Emsam, gave me several weeks of samples. She said it was expensive but assured me Mediare and my part D insurance would cover it. After about * weeks Emsam began to work. Dr gave me script. Only $*** per month. I'm on limited SSI and that's half my check. I did research, found there is an oral Selegiline. My research found it was an effective drug for Parkinson's. Since in goes though gut not nearly as effective for depression. Its crazy doing research on internet. Either over my head or just amatures who can't agree on anything. Rather then go though clean out period, try drug of my choice, Parnate, Dr suggested trying oral Selegiline. Still crazy expensive even at low doses. Problem I have dealing with pharmacists is they are not willing to risk contridicting Dr. Problem with MAOI's is Drs haven't taken the time, willing to risk studying how they may be useful to patients resistant to present drugs. I've had several drs tell me sorry, nothing more I can do. Classified me, that's what they do, just change classifications, as untreatable, good luck, don't kill yourself cause you'll miss your useless appointments and cost me income. My question is can I expect the postive effects i'm getting with Emsam to continue with oral Selegaline. I had a wonderful life, still so many possilbities still exist for me. I'm **, physically fit, surf, kayak, making a living as wood carver. Heavy physical work. Unfortunatly I've got a mental illness. Not sadness, self pity something I can't control without medical help. Recently lost lifelong friends, semi support group cause they have opinions that this has gone on too long. Forget the medical evidence or the radical change in my behavior that's gone on for years. The food restrictions that are so outrageously overblown regarding MAOI's are nothing I'd eat anyway. Please be as candid as you can. It's blasphamy but the truth, there are so many new drugs that Drs are learning from the pharmaceutical companies, essentially salesman. As a patient I realize it's my responsibity to be informed, make decisions instead of trusting, watching my life slip away day by day. I'm looking forward to your reply. My phone * is *** *** ****, email is *****@***.com
