> After a disappointing failure with Effexor SR (and Wellbutrin a several years ago) - both caused extreme aggitation, tremors, tachycardia, etc. - should that lead me to suspect that I can probably expect the same of Reboxetine and any other SNRI's that are on the road to approval?

I don't think past experience on two different drugs has any predictive value at all. Even within the same class- like SSRIs -it's impossible to predict what response and what side effects will result from each. Or someone might handle one MAOI poorly but handle a similar one fine. I think all any of us can expect is that if we don't give it a fair trial we'll never know if it would have worked. And we'll never know if the side effects would have subsided or not.
