>if it gets through special access as quickly as my amisulpride did, i really should go for it. but then again sanofi aventis sent me this almost $300 box worth of amisulpride that i didn't expect, i'd like to avoid an analagous scenario unless it is absolutely necessary to part with that much money in one shot.

Tianeptine is pretty expensive, but not that expensive. I paid 72 for 30 days supply (90 tablets). That works out at $138 a month. There are slightly cheaper suppliers though, but they don't accept my card. I get amisulpride free on prescription and it did help a little in the beginning, but I wouldn't advise anyone to pay that much out of pocket for it.

>the only things that really bother me are it's half life, and the cholinergic question. i have no idea what i read meant tho, something about it decreasing acetylcholine concentrations in some area, whatever area, human brain? rat brain? i don't remember.

The half-life isn't a problem, but you do need to take three tablets spread out through the day. There are no between-dose withdrawal symptoms though. I haven't heard of the studies you mention, and I'm not sure if it really matters. A psychologist recently criticised me for over intellectualising problems. I think you might benefit from just trying the drug and sticking to it for a month or so. Often we veterans get so wrapped up in the neurochemistry of the drugs, but when it comes down to it things rarely work out in practise the way we hope they will from our theories.

I'd highly recommend tianeptine though, however it works (I don't think the mechanism is fully understood in any case). Good luck.
