Neptune’s Fix and Tianeptine Dangers

Neptune’s Fix, often called “gas station heroin” or “happiness in a bottle,” is an unregulated and dangerous product marketed as a supplement for improving brain function and treating conditions such as anxiety, depression, pain, and opioid use disorder.

This product contains tianeptine, an illegal tricyclic antidepressant not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to its severe and potentially lethal side effects. It affects the brain similarly to opioids, leading to addiction and severe health risks, including respiratory depression, cardiac issues, seizures, and coma.

Additionally, Neptune’s Fix includes other harmful, unlisted ingredients, further endangering consumers’ health.

FDA Warnings and Product Recalls

Due to their significant dangers, the FDA has issued strong warnings against purchasing or using Neptune’s Fix and tianeptine products. Despite these warnings, many consumers remain unaware of the risks, particularly recovering addicts who may be susceptible to the misleading claims of these products.

Many of these individuals have turned to Neptune’s Fix, mistakenly believing it to be a safe supplement, only to find themselves facing a new addiction and severe, potentially life-threatening health issues.

Both Neptune Resources LLC and Super Chill Products have recalled their Neptune’s Fix products, which come in flavors such as cherry, lemon, and chocolate vanilla. However, Super Chill Products has failed to publicly announce their recall, leaving many consumers uninformed and exposed to risk.
