I'm not really awake enough to get into a supremely in-depth discussion on this, but had to put my 2 cents in on the Remeron issue--specifically that when I gave it a try, I not only couldn't stop eating, almost literally, but was so comatose that I couldn't move my arm enough to hit the snooze button when my alarm filtered through to my brain the next morning. Both got a little better at the higher dose, but if you're susceptible to the sedation, you might want to be wary of this one--I still cringe in fear when I see the name. Needless to say, it didn't survive very long in my medication arsenal. I'll let you all know how the reboxetine study goes, since I know I'm not the only one who's been waiting and waiting for it to be available in the U.S.--maybe it would be a good thing for you to look into once it's more readily accessible...
