I tried tianeptine Sodium on three different occasions. Every time I felt like I would collapse from sheer tiredness... It was a nightmare, I couldn't stay awake for the life of me.
The next day was a different story, the after burn left me supercharged. I accomplished a whole lot more than a normal day for me.
I took it again in the afternoon... I had to be excused from work because I was so tired and drained...But suddenly the next day I was a vibrant intellectual fully motivated to become even more cognitive.
And so on and so forth
I don't suffer from depression, but the after burn next day effect caused me to give a thumbs up on this potential nootropic. -- 3.5 rating.
