Has anyone on here tried Tianeptine? If you have, have you ever overdone it? How has it worked for you? How have you taken it?
For the last several months I have been taking it kind of religiously every day. It has TRULY been a miracle drug for me. Nothing has been as good or effective as this noortropic to help with my clinical depression and anxiety and stress. I haven't been so punctual or responsible or reliable or just been able to get past when my mom or dad or whoever said something bad or negative to me. I was student teaching and honestly did amazing with his responsible and reliable I was. In the past of something didn't go well, usually because of dating, I'd get so unhappy and depressed that I'd end up binging and staying in my room for a week or two, not wanting to do anything but just escape the world, not go to work or school. Similar situations have happened to me in these past few months, but for the most part I have been able to overcome them and move on, and I think it has been because of Tianeptine... and it was absolutely amazing.
However, I know that in the last week or two I've taken too much of it. Like, I got really insecure about this one guy and my thoughts started to race, and I took way more of Tianeptine (I take it in a liquid form with a dropper). That one time, about a week ago, it actually really helped me. Like I felt numb and really sleepy and my racing thoughts slowed down and I wasn't feeling insecure anymore, just like whatever if I don't hear from the guy again. Then I felt ok in the morning. Usually now I've been taking two droppers in the morning, mixing that with grapefruit juice and some Splenda cause it tastes aweful. When I first started I would do it morning and night, cause my anxiety and negative thoughts were really high and I was binging and purging etc. since taking Tianeptine I have really started to take care of myself a lot and been able to function like a normal human being.
But on Friday I started to get extremely insecure about this guy again, that I did something wrong. So I went home to drink more Tianeptine because my thoughts were racing so much. And I drank way more than I usually do, like several doses. And soon after I started to feel really sick, like my brain was burning and I felt sick and nautious, felt like throwing up, and all I could do was lie in bed and sleep. I still felt an after effect the next morning. I didn't take any yesterday. This morning, because of feeling depressed, I took one dropper, but the burning brain sensation came back again and I felt like lying in my bed and I'm in my bed now, lying, maybe will sleep some more... but I don't know what to do... Tianeptine has REALLY REALLY REALLY helped me SO MUCH... but does this mean I can't take it anymore? I really don't know what to do... should I try a different drug? I'm just afraid to damage my brain in some way or cause some permanent effects... but I'm afraid that without Tianeptine my desire to do stuff and to just get out of bed will not come back... that drug has honestly been a miracle for me...Any thoughts, please share, and please help me
