hmm, if you are scared of venlafaxine withdrawal, then adding tianeptine would probably be a bad idea because, logically at least, it could make things worse.. it would speed up reuptake of serotonin, which is the opposite of venlafaxine's actions on serotonin. if you want to avoid withdrawal, I think you could try tramadol for a limited period of time, or replace venlafaxine with a long-acting SSRI like fluoxetine, and then taper down on that.. or you reduce your venlafaxine dose really slowly, 75mg every other week or so..

have you and your doc considered milnacipran (savella)? it's supposed to be good for both depression and fibromyalgia...

good luck!
