It's really too bad because Rebox is the last drug in what seems like an endless trial of practically all the drugs on the market. Nothing has worked for very long or I have not been able to tolerate the side effects. The term treatment resistance seems to have been created especially for me! Good luck all.

Peter (and All) -

I must say, from the posts here and my own experience, the side effects of Reboxetine were unexpectedly harsh.

It's a small N to be sure, but I got quite a wallop at 2mg BID, and Luke got hammered at 4mg BID.

If this is to be a successful drug in the US, docs should prescribe a very small starting dose and ramp up.

I am now about to start my 4th week on the drug, and almost all the side effects are gone except for peeing slowly.
