Eliz, kindly responded to Bob's request however the jargon is still a bit thick for those of us who flunked chemistry, didn't study pharmacy and prefer english to scientific semi-mystic babble...

So perhaps one of you would be so kind as to explain in basic English the following. For instance what the heck is norepinephrine aka
noradrenaline I understand the words that nor is accompanying but not sure what it is doing to them...

And perhaps while you are at it you can clearly explain what exactly a "reuptake inhibitor" is and does, as I don't know enough about your politics to determine what Congress is doing to the country, though generally one hears that politicians of all types are screwing their counties, however I can't quite see the chemical interaction there (the seminal one, perhaps but I digress...;8^! )

And is it possible that the recprtors affected are the same one's andrewb refers to in our earlier thread about the effects of various meds. on dopamine or does norepinephrine interact with completely different pathways, which I suspect is the case but I can't ig-nor-e the possibilty that they are companion reactions in re-uptaking...& brain shaking...nuff said, so please help clear my head of jargon overload as it is fuzzy enough already...

>>... 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?).
>... minimal interaction with various receptors besides the NE transporter.
