I wanted to add my support about tianeptine. I have taken it for about a year, also, and feel that, while it's only moderate (for me) as an AD, it's quite good in reducing anxiety. It gets very high marks for neuroprotection from the people who have studied it at Rockefeller University (Bruce McEwen) and the German Primate Center. It's been ued safely in France for 10 years- and it's the most side effect-free AD I've ever taken.
I'm amazed that your doctor would suggest SMOKING a bit, after you have quit. Also, valium is much more addictive than tianeptine, although a few people (in France) have begun taking steadily increasing amount of tianeptine- only a few, though, and they are all people with lengthy abuse histories.
