>This is a very pro-sensual drug for me. I can't take it all the time bc it makes me a bit edgy but I take "as needed" and think it is fine.

Yes, that's my experience too, except I take it all the time.
It worked straight away on me, more or less.
I also wonder if it has been helpful with depersonalisation?

>Depression, for me, often manifests as deep feeling of grief and sadness (which are very physical in nature) coupled with a general tendency to view stimulus in a negative painful manner.

Yes!
It got me out of the house, which was impressive.

As I said above, I'm wondering if it has been helpful with depersonalisation.
I'm just reading "Feeling Unreal" which is very interesting.

 

Depersonalisation and sensuality

Posted by Sigismund on July 18, 2007, at 17:18:37

In reply to Tianeptine: pro-sensual, posted by elanor roosevelt on July 17, 2007, at 21:34:52

Since one of the characteristics of depersonalisation is an overemphasis on the part of us that observes ourselves (and in particular our mental state and thoughts), any drug that helps us feel grounded by reconnecting with our (what am I supposed to say here?) bodies? meat? will be helpful.

I already asked this (maybe you missed the post), but can you tell me if a doctor is prescribing it for you or are you treating yourself? Thanks.

Yes - I've had good luck cutting the tabs. I've found the best method to be a steady hand and sharp x-acto knife.

I started at 1/2 tab BID so no problems w/ cutting 'em.

I only tried it the once, but it seemed pretty good.

That's great. I'm going to print out some info about this drug for my doctor. Maybe he will consider it. I'm running out of options!

Stablon and Clonazepam

Posted by cruise on July 23, 2007, at 0:04:29

In reply to Thanks!, posted by brooke484 on July 21, 2007, at 20:13:24

Hi, I started on Stablon four weeks ago switching from Celexa. I have read nothing but good things about it other than one poster who seems to be having the same reaction I am, which is basically still feeling depressed.

The thing in common we have is we are both also taking Klonopin and I'm wondering if it affects the effectiveness of Stablon.

I've already begun to taper the Klonopin as I really want to give it a good try.

In reply to Stablon and Clonazepam, posted by cruise on July 23, 2007, at 0:04:29

I can think of a few people who didn't like it because it made them feel weird, and others who said it had no effect on their depression.
But depression is one of those words, I have no idea what it means, not really.
Perhaps there has been a consensus that Stablon is mildly pro-social?

If I had switched from Celexa to Stablon, one thing I'd be thinking is that these drugs apparently work in opposite ways, and how long is it going to take for my brain to get used to that??

That is a very good point...I wonder if anyone else on the site has made the switch directly from an SSRI to Stablon.

So did you just stop Celexa one day and start Stablon the next?

In reply to Re: Stablon and Celexa cruise, posted by Sigismund on July 23, 2007, at 14:58:11

yes I did...my psychiatrist assured me that was not a problem...

Well then, I would guess that the period of maximum disruption to your brain/homeostasis thing would have been then, at the time of the change over.

There have been some people who have just said they don't find Stablon has an AD effect.

I was feeling fairly bad and added some SAMe to Stablon, and I hope it makes the awful stuff go away.

today is the second day i have been taking .25mg less of the clonazepam and my mood is better.

just for a test, i took an extra Stablon tonight...i'm interested in knowing if it will make me more anxious than just taking 3.

i've read some posts where people were having good results taking 4 per day spaced out evenly as it definately seems to have some sort of immediate reaction as opposed to SSRIs

hope you feel better

What dosage are you taking and what did you start at? Can you also tell me how long it took for you to feel the effects?

I'm new here but not new to antidepressants. It seems to me that if serotonin appears to be the problem and yet typical SSRIs don't work then perhaps Stablon might.
