> Message to Ian. My mother is 80 years old and
severely depressed. She has been on every
anti-depressant available in the U.S., and we were
very excited about the prospect of Reboxetine,
since one of the few drugs that had been able to
help her in the past 35 years was imipramine, however, her doctor says she is now too old to take it. He is aware of Reboxetine and thinks it
may help her, but is unwilling to try to prescribe
it. We also tried to get her in a study in San
Diego for Reboxetine, but again, she is too old.
Do you have any idea how to get a doctor to prescribe Reboxetine, or how to get a package
from England. We have been told that no doctor
here would be willing to do this.

> > Cyclosporin
> > Ergot derivatives
