Maximum dosage for Stablon (tianeptine)

I called Servier in Indonesia today and asked them what the maximum dosage is and the representative said, "We only recommend 1 tablet 3 times a day, sir."

I kept trying to ask him if there is a maximum dosage since 1 tablet 3 times a day doesn't work for me, so I take 1 tablet 4 times a day.

He acted like a robot and repeated the same thing he said before.

Does anyone here have any information about the various dosages? I do recall reading in clinical trials that Stablon was used up to 75mg/day in divided doses, so that would be 6 tablets a day.

Ed, do you know about this? All other drugs have a range of dosages, but Servier is a bit strange...seems like with any drug they produce they slap on a "one size fits all" type dosing regimen.

Thanks in advance! :-)

p.s. I did find Survector but it is expired and the Servier representative said they quit producing it at least 5 years ago. He didn't give any particular reason why they ceased production. I asked him if it was because of low demand and he said there was high demand but they just don't make it anymore. Hmm... no explanation at all why they quit (although we all know why hehheh).

I hope this isn't counterfeit Survector. It comes in strips of six 100mg tablets, still in the blister package but not in the cardboard box. Here in Indonesia, counterfeit drugs have been produced that looked so genuine almost no one noticed....even down to the blister package. Very clever counterfeiting has been accomplished here... quite scary. :-(
It is expired though, but cheaper than Stablon when I add up the cost of taking 4 Stablon per day vs. 1/2 or 1 Survector per day.
