Re: Tianeptine + Desipramine

Dothiepin and tranylcypromine both worked for me. On that basis I'm going to try lofepramine first because it's the TCA with the mildest side effects. Tianeptine doesn't do anything for my energy and motivation. I still lie in bed for hours every morning because I'm afraid of/ too tired to get up and face the day, so I'm hoping the noradrenergic effect of lofepramine will help with that. If lofepramine fails I will probably go back to Parnate. Alternatively I may try adding tianeptine to lofepramine for a while.

I'm male and I live in the UK. Tianeptine costs me around 72 for three weeks supply. As I already said, I will ask my doctor if there is a way of importing it on the NHS, but I very much doubt it. I've taken tianptine many times in the past and can live without it. It was mainly to get me out of a severe depressive episode this time. I'll probably have to limit myself to short courses when I'm very depressed if nothing else works.
