Hi. Thanks. So, I guess, if most of the side effects are thought to be bc of withdrawal of Seratonin, then adding Tianeptin would make that worse because it will block seratonin, leading to a sudden stop vs. a gradual tapering. Is that it?

Yes, I've tried Savella and had some pretty severe side effects. But it was prescribed by a pain doctor, to take on top of effexor. That didn't make any sense to me, and after feeling pretty nuts for a week, and knowing they didn't have enough expertise to deal with potential seratonin issues, I went off it. Tianeptine seems like a better choice tho because I have such bad panic attacks and generalized anxiety...so yeah, I'm not saying it's going to save the world ;)...but it might be a good thing to have in mine. VG
