Doctor gave me one pill called Amitriptyline 10 mg for pain, not for what it's used for.
Now the anime reuptake pumps may not be working properly to put back the neurotransmitters such as serotonin into the presynaptic cell. I read a possible cure is a medication called Tianeptine.
From what I read Tianeptine speeds up the reuptake of serotonin but the possible problem might be that it may also speed up serotonin going into the synapses from the presynaptic cell. If this is not correct, what other would repair/clean my reuptake pumps?
I’d need to be careful not to take too much for to long, so I would need to know has this worked?
What type of doctors would prescribe this?
Do you know who has successful experience in how to prescribe it?
