Hello - I just wanted to say that I have been following your posts, and I appreciate the updates on your experience with Tianeptine. I am going to begin taking Tianeptine next week for the first time - although I have no current or history of depression. I am taking it because I have Huntingtons Disease - a heredity neurodegenerative disorder. HD's first effects on the brain are atrophy of the hippocampus - much the same as is seen in the brains of those who have major depression. In fact, the first symptoms of HD are usually depression - although I am not yet symptomatic. My neurologist has suggested I begin a Tianeptine regimine- as more of a 'hail mary pass' that this will delay the onset of the disease (other SSRI's are currently in clinical trials for the treatment of HD-but tianeptine has shown less side effects and similar neuroprotective benefits). There is currently no cure, and no treatments for HD. It is always terminal - so I am willing to try just about anything. I would greatly appreciate any information on expected side effects - or any predictions on what this will do to my mood, etc - as I am not depressed. I am in the US - and although my doctor is quite progressive, he doesn't seem to have much experience with this medicine either - so I'm trying my best to educate myself.

Many Thanks to you all for sharing!
