Tianeptine Sulfate Reviews
Most reports praise it's longer duration and enjoy its superior stability when being stored or used. The simple fact that it does not turn to a gooey mess like its older brother, seems to win people over.
Although still in its infancy, Tianeptine Sulfate looks like it's here to stay - definitely having won a well deserved arm wrestle with its older brother Sodium.
I have been using the new Tianeptine Sulfate for five days now, and it just blows away Tianeptine Sodium. The timed release effect works perfectly - a single dose lasts at least six hours, if not ten. There are no highs and lows in mood. There's no strong euphoria, and more importantly, there's no crash either.
I have been using tianeptine as my primary antidepressant since last June. For several months, I've been taking about 100 mg a day. The need to redose every 2-3 hours has been frustrating and impractical, so the ability to go for most of the day on one dose makes tianeptine so much more valuable. I find that a single 100 mg dose of tianeptine sulfate kicks in within 15 minutes, hits peak effect from 1-3 hours in, and hangs on for many more hours. It might be able to last all day, but I find myself taking a booster of tianeptine sodium in the evening, just out of habit.
Since the changes in blood concentration of tianeptine sulfate are more gradual, it is clearly much less addictive than the sodium form. (The faster a drug kicks in, and the steeper the spike in dopamine, the more addictive it is.) If and when I need to stop taking tianeptine, the sulfate form will make a taper much easier.
In conclusion, props to Ceretropic for making "Stablon" deserving of its name. I hope tianeptine sulfate becomes the new standard.
Edit: In addition, the taste of the sulfate form is totally bland, unlike the unpleasant taste of the sodium form.
I was actually just going to make a post about it earlier as well but I'll just comment here:
Agree with everything you said. This stuff is awesome. For me, tianeptine sodium was inconsistent and coming off of it was like a cliff - I knew the second it was wearing off and I was right back to feeling "bleh". With the sulfate it all feels like one very smooth glide. I actually haven't been bothering to re-dose throughout the day because once the effects are wearing off I don't even notice and I continue feeling pretty good for a good ten hours or so.
Really impressed with Ceretropic on this one. This stuff is 100% the best anti-depressant for me. Highly recommend it.
I've never tried tianeptine before, but I bought the sulfate version to try out. I'm meant to be on 75mg of zoloft but I only take 50mg because 75 causes migraines. I am continously depressed, the zoloft helped my panic disorder and ocd but if anything made my depression worse. Everyday is just mood swings and wishing I could die.
But, today for the first time I took 40mg tianeptine sulfate with my zoloft. It's been about 6 hours since and I feel great, finally normal, happy and able to enjoy my girlfriends company instead of wanting her to leave me alone. I dunno if this will disappear in time but it is just so great to be happy for once.
Tianeptine is great, I first got the sodium and then switched to sulfate. With the sulfate I now dose around 60mg in the morning and another 40mg 4 hours later - that way I get a solid 16 hours with less highs and lows out of it. (Caution advised though, this dose is considered to be higher than the recommended dosage, although imo not recreational yet).
I'm definitely more "present" on Tianeptine, less trapped in my own head. I think in that sense it also helps me have better times with my girlfriend like you said. Some of the racetams and SEMAX give me the feeling of just wanting to isolate and go work or learn everything there is on the internet about some topic that just piqued my interest. With tianeptine I'm more flexible and can adapt to different situations more easily.
There's just one downside to it: it makes me sleepy as hell, and I can barely counter the tiredness with caffeine. I'm now up to 600mg caffeine a day. I don't really want caffeine as part of my daily stack but since I don't have modafinil on hand, it seems to be the best option right now.
