Hi Scott,

> If you don't mind, I'd like to ask why you discontinued tianeptine after only 2 weeks? I'm sure 2 weeks is an eternity in the midst of a panic state.

You are right - I find panic attacks to be absolutely intolerable. If I am taking an effective medication, then I start to get relief after about 2 weeks; a worsening of symptoms indicate that I am not responding. I was clearly not responding to tianeptine.

Have you considered another French drug, milnacipran? I have been on it for a couple of months now (150 mg/day) and it has certainly been better than nothing. It's side effect profile is the cleanest of any antidepressant I have ever tried. Unfortunately for me, it leaves me feeling only 'half well' - like all the others. I am going to take up my pdoc's offer of Parnate when I see him next week in the hope of a more full response. I bet I will miss the lack of side effects with milnacipran, however.
