I took the Stablon 6 hours ago and about an hour after taking it I started to develop a mild headache (vascular headache in the temples, similar to caffeine withdrawal) and mild nausea.
I was supposed to take another dose now (6 hours after the first one), but have decided to have a snack for now and wait a few more hours.
It's nothing like the SSRIs though. I think I can tolerate these side effects. I am using the recommended dose of 12.5mg t.i.d. and usually those of us with panic disorder cannot tolerate full doses like this I would guess.
It has not aggravated my anxiety though. Just the headache and lowered appetite/mild nausea.
I bet this one doesn't cause weight gain. In fact, I was reading that tianeptine doesn't cause weight gain in the studies.
