> THE GOOD DRUG GUIDE
> "..... Amineptine (Survector) is a clean-ish, (relatively) selective dopamine reuptake blocker. Higher doses promote dopamine release too. Amineptine is pro-sexual and liable occasionally to cause spontaneous orgasms. It is a mild but pleasant psychostimulant and a fast-acting mood-brightener. Amineptine is also a clinically useful antidepressant. Unlike other tricyclics, it doesn't impair libido or cognitive function. It has a small but non-negligible abuse-potential. Unlike typical stimulants and other activating agents, amineptine may actually improve sleep architecture. Amineptine can be an especially valuable agent for melancholic, anhedonic and unmotivated people whose mood is sometimes worsened by SSRIs.
> Amineptine isn't marketed or licensed in Britain and America. In Europe, the medication has been driven onto the pharmaceutical grey market. This is because FDA pressure led to the withdrawal of amineptine's EC product-license early in 1999, causing substantial problems for patients and physicians alike. In 2002, amineptine is still available in parts of South America. It is off-patent, but not cheap. Optimal dosage is variable; but typically 100mg-250mg per day. No exact substitute for amineptine is currently on offer or in prospect...."
I couldn't care about the orgasm part of the drug but the rest of it may have been a real benefit. There is no end to the damage done by the FDA.
