I used the Emsam patch for approx. two years. I believe I was born depressed and, in 60 years of living, I've taken just about every AD including ECT.
As usual, Emsam was a godsend for two years and then, one day, BAM! it stopped working. (I suppose I was fortunate that it happened so fast; otherwise my descent into the Black could have taken an agonizing long time.) I was so disappointed Emsam stopped helping me, as I'm sure you must be; I'm so sorry.
This happened six years ago and I've yet to find a replacement for Emsam. I've tried four or five ADs since then but no luck yet. Today I am starting Prestique. If that doesn't help, my doctor will add Abilify to it in a month.
I see by the date you wrote this in 2010. Best wishes to you; I hope you found something else by now that is helping you.
