I abandoned the sodium because I had heard it was more addictive. I am considering re-starting the sulphate (it is all I have), because anxiety is bad again. Ugh.

[...], it does sound nice on paper! I might order the Stablon from Europe and start with the blessing and guidance of my very open-minded doctor. My tianeptine sulphate is third party tested and certified, but it's never been used in any trial.

Give it a go. There are indeed people who find the sulphate doesn't work for them yet the sodium does.

Though I said that, with time, it isn't working as well as I had hoped, (and that may be due to benzo withdrawal) I know very well how desperately hard living with depression is, and even some relief is very welcome and helps you function in life.

Very interesting thread. Thanks for starting it. I have never heard of Tianeptine.

I was on tianpetine and thought it did nothing until I stopped and got more anxious and depressed. Not like withdrawal, just a slow sinking. I re-started and now I feel much better. In early withdrawal, it's just hard to tell I think.

Clarifying post - I am not providing medical advice. If you felt that I did, I apologize. Please check with you doctor on any medicine. I am not advising to do anything without the advice of your doctor.

Sounds interesting but I'd want to check with my psychiatrist who is also a pharmacologist. I too have had lifelong depression and have tried various antidepressants over the years. I'm currently on a high dose Rx of SNRI which turned my world from black to grey, but just barely and not without side effects. Who knows . . .
