Tianeptine - an antidepressant with a difference.
A proven, effective modern antidepressant with a difference: instead of blocking the absorption of serotonin, it enhances absorption! Improving mood and memory function. Minimal side effects and importantly suitable for patients taking other medication as drug-drug interaction is minimized. Available to buy online here as Stablon tablets.
Tianeptine, can be used in treating depression, depressed bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, dysthymia and adjustment disorder.
Tianeptine is a selective serotonin reuptake enhancer (SSRE). It accelerates uptake of serotonin in the brain with the aim of elevating mood and reducing the damage caused to the brain by hormonal response to stress.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that works to regulate our moods, memory, sleep and many other psychological and physical functions. Low levels of serotonin are widely connected with depression. Common antidepressants Prozac and Paxil are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs): they function by trying to keep as much existing serotonin as possible in circulation in the body. Tianeptine does the opposite.
There is still much medical debate on why these two apparently conflicting approaches both deliver the same antidepressant effect, and ongoing research is focused on understanding in full how tianeptine functions.
Despite the uncertainty about its method of action, there are two key factors that ensure ongoing medical interest in tianeptine:
Tianeptine was developed by French pharmaceutical company Servier. Originally sold under the brand name Stablon, it is approved for use in France as well as several other European countries and parts of Latin America. It does not have FDA approval, but this is at least in part because Servier has not formally applied. We sell generic Tianeptine.
There have been a wide range of trials and studies around tianeptine, comparing its efficacy to other antidepressants and seeking to understand its method of action. The comparative trials have shown that stablon is at least as effective as other modern antidepressants.
Other research is investigating tianeptine as a treatment for asthma, for irritable bowel syndrome, attention deficit disorder and Parkinson's Disease.
Tianeptine is usually taken in 12.5 mg tablets, two or three times a day after food. One of the reasons for this is its short half-life: regular top-ups are required to maintain the effect.
However if you miss a dose at a regular time, do not take a double dose next time. In the event of overdose, seek medical assistance immediately.
While in some cases improvements are noticeable within a week, onset of action normally takes 2-6 weeks.
Tianeptine side effects are minimal. However, there are still some important guidelines to follow when taking any antidepressant.
If you do experience any negative side effects, inform your doctor.
There are a number of antidepressants available today, from traditional "tricyclics" to the SSRIs like Prozac and Paxil. Tianeptine is different in terms of its method of function and the way it is metabolized. Most importantly of all, however, it offers comparable efficacy to other anti-depressants with fewer side-effects.
