Tynept is a generic form of Tianeptine. Each tablet contains exactly 12.5mg of Tianeptine Sodium, manufactured by INTAS Pharmaceuticals.
Tynept consists of Tianeptine Sodium, doubted to be an SSRE (selective serotonin reuptake enhancer). Although it’s named an SSRE, data suggests that Tianeptines activation of the mTOR signaling pathway, and as an atypical agonist of the μ-opioid receptor could be the leading cause for its effects at treating depression. It also may have the ability to stabilize glutamatergic neurotransmission which would explain its ability to increase cognitive function and relieve anxiety related symptoms.
So, even though the mechanism of action for Tynept isn’t fully understood yet, clinical trials have proven it to be just as effective as more commonly prescribed anti-depressants with possibly fewer side effects.
