> For me, dj, and the rest of us who get buried under all these medical-sounding names, can you do a recap on Reboxetine -- how it relates to other SSRIs, oh, I dunno ... you're good at this medicine stuff, you decide what to say.

It's not an SSRI; I'd hope that the drug development types had gotten bored of those by now. It could be called an SNRI (selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor). It does to norepinephrine [another name for noradrenaline] what Prozac & co. do to serotonin (and what Congress has been doing to the country?).

An older drug with a similar profile is the tricyclic desipramine. Reboxetine is liable to have fewer side effects than desipramine, though, due to minimal interaction with various receptors besides the NE transporter.
