> I did almost the same thing, but, being extremely sensitive to medications, could take only 150- 300 mg. Still, I felt it was helpful, both in protecting the hippocampus and in making extreme emotional states less frequent. Unfortunately, even a low dose now gives me EPS - a feeling that my gait is unsteady, although my husband says it appears to be fine . If it didn't do that, I would definitely still be taking it. Protecting the hippocampus is so vital for recovery. TMS is supposed to have a similar protective effect, so I'm presently relying on that. So far, so good!

Are you still taking tianeptine (Stablon)?

I haven't looked into it in depth, but N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is supposed to have a neuroprotective effect, and does affect the hippocampus quite robustly. NAC is converted into glutathione in the body, which is a potent antioxident. However, I don't know all the ways in which NAC works to protect the hippocampus.
