I have started with Tianeurax today!

Posted by doxogenic boy on September 17, 2013, at 16:11:37

Hello everybody.

Today, I fetched the packages with Tianeurax (generic tianeptine) on my local pharmacy. Before that, I took my last two doses (50 mg X 2) today with Stablon, at 12:00 noon and 1:00 PM Norwegian time.

Then, at 4:51 PM, I took my first 50 mg dose with Tianeurax, and thereafter the subsequent 50 mg Tianeurax doses at 5:51 PM, 7:35 PM and 9:38 PM.

I haven't felt any difference after I switched to Tianeurax from Stablon today; I still feel good, and no new and no troublesome side effects. Tianeptine is fast-acting and has a short half life, so if there was a big difference between Stablon and Tianeurax, it is possible that I could feel a difference now.

But I won't know until I have used it for some weeks, if Tianeurax from neuraxpharm in Germany is as good for me as Stablon from Servier Austria.

If there are someone out there who have done the same change in meds, I am very interested in hearing your experiences.

I still feel good on my sixth day of Tianeurax. So far it seems like it is just as good as Stablon.

That's good to hear. Based on my personal experiences - admittedly with completely different drugs -, if you don't feel a difference six days after switching, I would say you're in the clear.

Thanks for sharing your experiences. I begin to feel safe on Tianeurax now.

If there is a small difference between the generic and the brand, could it take longer to notice that?

Technically, yes. But I think it's relatively unlikely that that is going to happen.

Theoretically, if the new med is releasing tianeptine much slower or faster than the old one, there could be a transitional period of feeling worse, but I don't think that will happen. If the half-life of tianeptine is indeed just a few hours as it's indicated on Wikipedia, that would mean that you have already reached a pharmacokinetic steady state with Tianeurax (i.e., the blood levels are no longer fluctuating from one day to the next).

In my experience, if it takes an antidepressant one or several weeks to kick in, this does not keep me from feeling significantly worse even just hours after I miss a dose. If you're fine six days after, I think it's unlikely that you're going to have any problems ahead.
