Stablon is an antidepressant medication, consisting of Tianeptine, used to treat people suffering from depressive disorders as mood or panic disorder, dysthmia [adjustment disorder], post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD], or major depression. Stablon is a pain-reliever as well, isnt as addictive as mu-selective opioids, and doesnt sedate. It doubles up as a fast-acting bronchodilator the ideal choice for alcoholic asthmatics undergoing depression, as it makes the patients feel well without making them feel intoxicated or leaving a hangover that accompanies alcohol.
Stablon for stability: Stablon containing Tianeptine, is beneficial in treating the entire range of depressive illnesses afflicting people. Serotonin, a neurotransmitter, is believed to control moods, sleeping pattern and body temperature, and works by transporting signals from one nerve cell to another, but when it gets re-attached to the parent nerve, it upsets the chemical balance in the brain. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors [SSRIs] inhibit the work of serotonin, by not letting it get re-attached to its parent nerve, thereby correcting the chemical imbalance in the brain. Tianeptine is a selective serotonin reuptake accelerator yet, surprisingly, it does not have an adverse impact on the brain; in ways not understood by scientists, it works towards maintaining the brains chemical balance! It is used to treat severe or chronic depression, dysthmia [adjustment disorder], mood or panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD].
For those considering treatment with Stablon, it is essential to give your complete medical history to your psychiatrist/treating doctor, informing the physician of all the medicines being taken by you [including OTC, prescription, nutritional supplements, herbal products], and any known allergies, so that your doctor can work out the correct dose regimen for you. The physician should know if you are an alcoholic, suffer from a kidney ailment or have asthma.
Should you have to undergo a surgery, you must inform the surgeon/doctor that you are taking this medicine, as soon as surgery is recommended. Treatment with Stablon has to be suspended normally at least 24-48 hours before a surgical procedure takes place; emergency operations can take place under vigilant operative supervision. If the medicine is suspended because of a surgery, for re-starting the dose, you must consult your physician.
