> There is a French antidepressant called viloxazine that looks interesting. It is similar to TCAs, but without anticholinergic side effects and no sedation. And it actually boosts libido, though anorgasmia is listed as a "rare" side effect. It must be rather activating, because I've seen it mentioned in narcolepsy as well as retarded apathetic depression. Common side effects are transient insomnia and nausea.
> An activating antidepressant that raises libido? That's what the clinical studies say about it. Sounds too good to be true. How come the French have all these cool choices that we don't? Too much litigation going on in USA that gets in the way of medical progress I think.
> Anyway, anyone know anything about viloxazine?

i actually did feel somewhat sedated after a couple of weeks on it, didn't notice any other side effects other than occasional headaches. i've considered trying it again, maybe i didn't give it enough time, who knows? one thing i seem to recall is that it didn't seem to stack up to well in studies, my impression is thatit never made it into wide-spread use because it wasn't a very effective drug.
