I'm quitting Tianeptine. If I didn't have this persistent anxiety, which wasn't there before I started, I would give it another week. My dysthymic depression was tolerable, but the added anxiety has made it very hard. My mood in week 4 was actually worse than week 1. I also think the very fact that I now believe this medication to be hopeless (for me) is itself an indication of a lack of antidepressant response.
When you have hope, you can put up with a lot of suffering. I have just lost all hope with this one.
