Hi Gary,

Contrary to the claims of the manufacturer, I got severe trouble with anxiety whilst on Tianeptine. I think it has to do with some sort of serotonine feedback mechanism which increases dopamine levels.

I tried to stick it out for 2 months, with no avail.

I find Seroquel to be a much better option for anxiety related problems.
Hope this helps some.

Maria

> I found some old archives, but I wanted to see if anyone has had any success with this drug for anxiety. If so, what dose and frequency and how long have you been on it. SSRI's do squat for me. They keep me from crying, but don't take away the sadness. Honestly, I feel better after a good cry, so IMHO crying is good. My depression seems to be secondary to my anxiety, or at least is seems to be as I have free floating anxiety all day long even with benzos.

I got some relief from Buspar for the first two weeks, but then it turned on me and I think it made it worse in the end. Other than that, I've tried most of the SSRI's, Mood Stabilizers, Augmentation with Antipsychotics, etc. I even saw a homeopathic Dr. and spend a few hundred bucks on supplements which did squat.

> Bleuberry, I saw you ordered Stablon and wondering what, if any, effect it has done on you. I'm not sure I understand how it works. If it enhances Serotonin release, then doesn't it work just like our bodies do without it ? The SSRI block to reuptake, thus keeping the Serotonin in the Synapse, so they claim. Isn't that where you want it ? I'm really confused about the two. Maybe you can clear the air for me. I have a 30 day supply here, not sure if I should take it with the 50mg Zoloft QD or just switch it. If I switch it, do I get the withdrawal?
