FDA Warns of Serious Potential for Tianeptine Misuse
The FDA recently released an alert warning consumers about the possible health effects of tianeptine and to avoid all products containing tianeptine. Although other countries have approved tianeptine to treat depression and anxiety, some have restricted how tianeptine is prescribed or dispensed, or revised the drug label to warn of possible addiction. Tianeptine has a potential for misuse, and people with a history of opioid use disorder or dependence may be at particular risk when using tianeptine.
