My other grown son (the son who still speaks to us...lol) has unfortunately inherited a lot of my problems--depression, anxiety, social phobia, and a bad case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). He is on Lamictal and Xanax-XR (which scares me to death because he has to drive to work). He says nothing else helped. His doctor recently added an EMSAM patch. Does anyone know anything about it? I feel so bad for him. He's not in a good place now, yet he still goes to work each day and tries really hard. He and his wife are expecting my first grandchild. He has always had anxiety issues, but they kicked up at nineteen. Then they went into remission and hit him again a few years ago--full force.
